The University of Iowa plans to make its campus “bike-friendly” to promote sustainability efforts, Facilities Management officials said Wednesday.

Iowa City is designated a bike-friendly community, according to criteria established by the League of American Bicyclists. At a Staff Council meeting Wednesday, Custodian Services Supervisor Joshua Smith said UI officials also want to meet these criteria by implementing a five-point plan that includes:

• Engineering an adoption for bike-accessible streets
• Educating cyclists and drivers to share roads safely
• Encouraging the UI to sustain resources by biking
• Enforcing law requirements and cycling into the community
• Evaluating a plan to increase cycling practices
