Borrow-a-Bike Program


The Borrow-a-Bike program will no longer be sending out bikes effective April 24, 2018. Anyone wishing to utilize a bike should see our new bike sharing program.

Bike Pick-up and Return

A lock, helmet, bell and lights are furnished with each bike. Bikes and equipment can be returned to the Campus Parking Services office from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. After or near the end of each semesters there is an inventory and maintenance period in which all bikes must be returned. Bikes are not automatically reinstated after the inventory and maintenance period -- you must come to Campus Parking Services to check out a bike again if you wish to borrow a bike for the next semester.

Bike return date is Wednesday, May 2, 2018 .

Lost, Damaged and Late Fees

You will be charged for any equipment that is returned late, in damaged condition, or not returned at all (lost or stolen). Late fees are assessed at $5 per day for each day beyond the bike's due date up to 10 days. Lost or stolen bikes and all related equipment will be assessed at replacement cost, plus 10 days fine.
