Request a Rental (Students and Faculty/Staff)

We are renting bikes for the Fall 2022 semester! The rental form will open in late September via Daily Messages. Rentals are assigned by lottery, and we will begin distributing bikes as soon as the form opens. We cannot guarantee anyone a rental, but we give priority to those who have a significant need for a bike as indicated on the rental form. Preparing the bikes for rental takes time; if you have not received a rental after 2-3 weeks then we unfortunately cannot provide you with a rental.

If the form says it isn’t accepting responses, it means we aren’t accepting rental requests at the time. We update the form as inventory and time allow.

Finally, please consider whether you will actually use a bike. We receive far more demand for bikes than we can supply and always have to turn people away.  When we assign bikes, we have no idea whether a bike will languish on a rack or be ridden multiple times a day. While we understand that predicting your own use can be difficult, we appreciate seeing our rental bikes ridden and ask that you will take this into account before requesting a bike, so that we can get bikes to those who need them and will use them the most.
