WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – A Purdue University task force is seeking ways to increase bicycle safety on campus.

The group took public input at an open house Thursday. Attendees marked bike travel on maps, where they think bike travel is problematic and where it is running smoothly.

Purdue Master Planning Director John Collier said they’re trying to make cycling more accessible.

“People want to be able to ride bikes on campus. They also want to be able to walk safely as pedestrians on campus. They do believe that they both need to try to co-exist on campus in a reasonable way,” said Collier.

He said, at last count, there are more than 2,000 bikes on Purdue’s West Lafayette campus. Collier said the university plans to start making suggested improvements this spring. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
