Bike Share

Borrow a bike for the academic year! The UMass Amherst Bike Share provides free year-long rental bikes to students, faculty, and staff. The program is operated by the Student Government Association and the Physical Plant. The program was made possible through a donation from the class of 2010.

In Fall 2018, the SGA partnered with UMass Amherst Bike Coop to make sure that everyone who rented received a tune-up for their bike (paid by the SGA).
