PAC Paths, Bikes, and Scooters...Oh, My!!

Arkansas State University

This is A-State Connections on KASU.  I’m Johnathan Reaves.  Arkansas State University offers many ways to get around the campus.  The campus has different modes of transportation for students.  Of course, students can enjoy a leisure walk or even skateboard, but also offered are VeoRide bikes and electric scooters.  A-State has done a lot recently to make sure that people can ride their bikes to their destination, including making PAC Paths on specific sidewalks across campus.  Associate Vice Chancellor for Marketing and Communications at Arkansas State University Dr. Bill Smith talks about the importance of having different modes of transportation on campus and about being a being a bicycle friendly campus.
