The Active Commuter Hub is a campus amenity available to WashU community members. The Hub had been opened initially for only a few short months before being closed due to COVID.
The Hub is located in the basement level of Schnuck Pavilion and features daily cubbies that are openly available and four shower rooms and Z-style lockers for members. The Hub is also home to a novel bike parts vending machine, an apparatus that offers common bike parts such as tubes of various sizes, a multi-tool, a patch kit, lights, and lube. The vending machine currently accepts cash only, but will hopefully accept BearBucks soon!
This past year, WashU received a gold-level Bike Friendly University designation. The Active Commuter Hub is one of WashU’s many offerings to facilitate sustainable transportation and micro-mobility around campus, including:
- Free bike registration is available to all members of the Danforth campus community.
- The Danforth Campus has six bike repair stations and (within the Active Commuter Hub), a bike parts vending machine that is available to all WashU community members.
- Parking & Transportation recently released their Smart Commute page to help our community become more aware of their many options to get safely and efficiently from point A to point B!
- Free U-passes are available to all full-time students and benefits-eligible staff, faculty, and basic service contractors.
