UofL offers incentive to give up parking permit

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The University of Louisville has a deal for students and employees who give up campus parking permits for two years. They'll be eligible for discounts on the cost of a new bike.

UofL is offering the deal for the first time through Earn-A-Bike. It's a program aimed at reducing the university's carbon footprint.

University assistant Justin Mog says students, faculty and staff who agree to do without parking permits for the next two years will be eligible for $400 vouchers. They can apply the voucher toward a new bicycle, a helmet or other bike-related products. The vouchers can be redeemed at any of three local bike businesses.

UofL also has a new car-sharing program that lets employees and students rent a vehicle without leaving campus.
