Alternatives durables

Mobility Week at ULiège


On the occasion of the Mobility Week organised throughout Wallonia from 16 to 22 September, the University of Liège encourages alternative mobility experiences and invites its community to consider its home-campus journeys differently.

umerous events are scheduled during this week dedicated to soft mobility. In particular, amateur cyclists are invited to a "Cycling in Traffic" training course to enable them to move around with confidence in traffic, while a cycling challenge aims to bring together as many cyclists as possible in order to exceed the 4,000 km covered during Mobility Week 2018.

 

Carpoolers are not to be outdone as the UGO.be platform now offers a mobile application that makes it even easier to consult travel opportunities.

Renamed "UGo", this platform, accessible to all members of the ULiège community, is open to members of the CHU of Liège, the staff of the Province and students of the HEPL as well as to the agents of the city and the CPAS of Liège. Today, the platform has 10,000 registered members in the Liege region.

1100 metres of cyclo-pedestrian paths

In 2018, 112 staff members benefited from the mileage allowance for commuting by bicycle and an average of 50 cyclists cycled up the Sart Tilman via Angleur every day. In 2019, the number of beneficiaries of the allowance was 138.

The road improvements currently under way at the Sart Tilman reveal the special attention paid to cyclists. 1,100 metres of paths for pedestrians and bicycles have been laid out on the campus.

In addition, the University continues to install bicycle racks and shelters on the various campuses, as well as terminals for electrically-assisted bicycles.

By 2020, the Sart Tilman campus is equipped with 139 hoops and 4 bicycle shelters. The downtown campus is equipped with 38 hoops and 6 bike shelters.
