As students of the University of California, Santa Barbara, we are always experiencing the puzzle and helplessness of rushing to classes within very short break time. So, we apply to permit and add the shared transportation such as the bike-sharing and the scooter-sharing in all campus areas, including the main campus area and Isla Vista.

UCSB is a large university which has 4.269 km^2. All teaching buildings are evenly distributed in every area of the campus. Therefore, students need to face a problem that if the classrooms of two classes are far apart, how can we catch up with the next class within 10 or 15 minutes break time?  

Let’s have a calculation. Walking from Campbell Hall to IV theater needs 17 minutes (according to Google Map), but usually, there is only 10-15 minutes between two classes, so it turns out that walking on foot is not feasible. Many students choose driving the car. However, on-campus parking has always been an annoying problem, and the school's parking lots are always full. Finding an available parking space can spend a lot of time and may even lead to the late for class. Finally, only one way available, which is taking the bike. Unfortunately, because of the popularity of this transportation, traffic congestion is presenting on the bicycle road every day.

!!Permitting and adding shared transportation can solve all those problems and bring extreme conveniences.!!

By importing some shared bikes such as “Mobike” or shared scooters such as “Bird” and “Lime” on campus, we can easily solve the problem of not having enough time to change classrooms, and students who drive the car don’t need to worry about parking issues. What’s more, the shared transportation can greatly increase the utilization of every vehicles, thereby reducing the total number of vehicles on campus and solve the bike congestion problem. When there is no need for buying private car and bike, students can save a lot of money on transportation. 

Enjoy convenience of going everywhere on campus + No rush to change classrooms + No need for parking + Escape from traffic congestion + Save a lot of money = we need the shared transportations on campus.
