The City of Clarksville recently partnered with Austin Peay State University to bring the popular BCycle program to APSU's campus. Students may now access a bicycle free of charge at a BCycle station located in front of the Foy Center.
“The BCycle program we've had in place has been such a tremendous success,” Mayor Kim McMillan said. “We have numerous stations located throughout the city, but we didn't have a location on the APSU campus until now. So, when APSU students suggested they would like to have this program on campus, we thought it was a great opportunity for a partnership.”
The BCycle program is free to students, but other locations around the city charge a small access fee. The city will be providing all maintenance on the bicycles and the return station. Unlike the other city BCycles, the APSU bikes are uniquely adorned with the APSU logo.
“We are excited about this new offering to APSU students,” Mayor McMillan said. “This partnership will empower APSU students not only to have quick and easy access around campus but around the community as well. Biking around our city is a great opportunity to see what Clarksville has to offer.”
