Through a partnership with the UNT Police Department, this bike theft prevention project provides students with free bike locks and bike ownership engravings. The We Mean Green Fund initiative launched at EarthFest in 2016 when UNT Police engraved over 100 bicycles for students who also received a free OnGuard Bulldog U-Lock. If a stolen bike is recovered and has an engraving on it, it can be returned to its rightful owner. Don't let your bike get T-Rexed!
This project aims to create a safer, friendlier campus atmosphere that encourages a “green” lifestyle for the entire UNT community. As people shift their mode of transportation from cars to bikes as a result of feeling safe biking on campus, we hope to impact improved local air quality with fewer vehicle emissions.
This ongoing project has equipped hundreds of students with a secure bike lock!
Students who would like to receive a free bike lock or have their bike engraved with their identification can contact the UNT Police Department's non-emergency phone 940-565-3000 or visit the PD for more information.
This project was proposed in 2016, with the support of the UNT Police Department. It has continued to receive additional funding every year through the 2020 – 2021 fiscal year.
