    Bison Bike Rentals

    Bison Bikes is the campus bike share program, where students can reserve a bike for the semester, free of charge. Short-term rentals are also available for students, faculty and staff at no cost.

    Due to high demand, semester rentals are selected through a lottery system at the end of the previous semester. (For example: Spring semester rentals are selected at the end of the previous fall semester).

    Please visit the link below for information on the next lottery. Bikes are set aside each fall for incoming first-year students, who have a separate lottery.

    In the fall semester, Bison Bikes are available from the start of the semester through the end of November. In the spring semester, bikes are available from mid-March through the end of the semester. Short-term rentals are available during the same time periods, for up to two weeks at a time. All bikes come with a helmet and lock. See the link below for more information and answers to frequently asked questions.

    If you brought your personal bike to campus but need help fixing a flat or solving other problems, come by Basecamp, located in Tustin, where our student bike technicians can repair your bike, or schedule maintenance through our portal.
