Campus Bike Sharing

Students Asked. We Listened.

The Ohio State University proudly began its bike sharing program in August 2015. This program offers university students, faculty and staff members, and campus visitors an alternative option to traveling across campus and support the "park once" philosophy. Living in a residence hall? No problem. Get access to a bicycle without having to store it on campus, and sleep soundly knowing it will be properly maintained. No need to lug your bike back and forth from home.
