The annual summer bicycle abatement program is underway at The Ohio State University.
The sweep by the Department of Transportation and Traffic Management helps manage abandoned bikes left on campus.
“We usually get about 400 to 500 bikes per year that people just leave behind,” said John Shrader, field logistics coordinator for Transportation and Traffic Management.
Department staff tag bicycles parked on campus with a bright yellow warning notice. Owners are given two weeks to move the bikes after they’ve been tagged. Bicycles not moved after two weeks are impounded and held for 90 days.

CABS may be rerouted, depending on traffic and roadway conditions, but buses will continue to service Carmack bus stops. Commuters should plan ahead, allow extra travel time and expect delays.

Following up on an initial request in April, Ohio State University is asking the board of trustees this week to officially give the go-ahead to start a new comprehensive transportation and parking plan for campus.
