Bike Sharing (Ongoing)
- Encourage Bicycle Use
Bike sharing is a system for sharing bicycles on a short-term basis. On the Urbana campus bike sharing includes both hourly and semester-long rentals, departmentally-owned bikes for employees, and bicycles available to specific student groups.
The effort to bring bike sharing to campus began in 2007 with the Multi-Modal Transportation Study, and the creation of a Transportation Demand Management Coordinator position at Facilities & Services. Since that time, several options have been explored, piloted, and institutionalized. The latest option is expected to be available in Fall 2018, through Dockless Bike Sharing.
