5030 College Avenue Apartments aims to reduce the need to drive though a variety of strategies, including free transit passes for residents who purchase a parking space, a reward program for infrequent drivers, and several amenities for bicyclists. Specifically, the project shows its commitment to reducing car trips by providing secure storage for at least 91 bikes in a convenient location within the parking garage, secure bike racks at the building entrance for guests, and a bike share program for residents located at the building entrance.
