Removal of inactive bicycles begins on campus


By Maaike Niekerk, Summer Editor

University of Illinois Facilities and Services released a statement on Monday announcing the beginning of the annual Summer Bicycle Roundup on campus.

In an effort to clear the roads and sidewalks of campus, UI Facilities and Services will be working together with the Parking Department to pick up any and all unwanted bicycles, the statement said.

According to the statement, “all bikes left on University property will be tagged with an orange sticker that reads, ‘Remove this tag by 6/30/23, or your bicycle will be removed.’”

Any bicycles with the orange sticker still on them after June 30 will be removed, as it will be assumed that the bicycle is no longer actively in use.

Removed bikes will be impounded by Facilities and Services and the Parking Department. If your bicycle is removed and you wish to retrieve it, you can do so by contacting [email protected].
