Bike Sharing at UMass!

The UMass Amherst Bike Share Program was created to encourage alternative transportation for students, faculty and staff. The bike share program is free and can be used by anyone with a valid UCard. Bikes will be housed outside the Student Union and secured to newly covered bike racks. Bikes, helmets and locks may be signed out from the Student Government office located in room 420 of the Student Union for a maximum of 24 hours.
