Bison Bikes is a free, community based, bike-sharing program and learning lab, aimed at providing an alternative mode of transportation for the Bucknell undergraduate community, limiting the environmental impact of student transportation, and increasing the availability of transportation on campus.Bison Bikes
Bucknell’s campus and the adjacent community of Lewisburg are distinctly walkable, and we encourage members of our community to use non-polluting means of transportation when possible, and shared transportation when needed.
Bike racks, some sheltered, are available throughout campus, and the Bison Bikes program loans free bicycles to Bucknell students. The 9-mile Buffalo Valley Rail Trail is also easily accessible from campus.
When a motor vehicle is required, we encourage environmentally conscious options. The Bucknell Shuttle provides safe public transportation around campus and to area dining and shopping venues, and ride-sharing services to major cities and airports are available as well. There are reserved parking spaces for low-emission vehicles in prime locations on campus, as well as two electric-vehicle charging stations that are open for public use — one two-port ChargePoint station and one Tesla-specific station. Cars are also available for rental on campus through the car-sharing service ZipCar.
