An oversized U of A street has now been improved to accommodate pedestrians and bicycles.

This fall, the University of Arkansas Office for Sustainability is hosting a Lunch and Learn series. Each session will have three Pecha Kucha-styled presentations that provide different perspectives on a topic. Complimentary lunch will be provided for those who register here. Space is limited.

Their first session will be at 1:30 today, Thursday, Oct. 10, at the Vol Walker Sky Terrace Conference Room, 420, and will focus on active transportation, U of A transportation systems and the VeoRide bike share. Hear perspectives from Dane Eifling, the bike and pedestrian coordinator for the U of A and the city of Fayetteville; Jim Coffman, an assistant professor of landscape architecture; and Aylin Pulido, the mobility coordinator for the Office for Sustainability.
