Bearcat Bike Share

The University of Cincinnati's Bearcat Bike Share began on April 22, 2010 and was kicked off with a bike parade down MainStreet as part of Earth Day 40th anniversary celebrations. The program is part of overall sustainability initiatives at UC and is the first component of the UC Bike Plan to be implemented. The Bearcat Bike Share will help reduce carbon emissions, pollution, traffic, and parking shortages while increasing health, fitness, community engagement, and a sense of place.

Check Out

Bicyles can be checked out, at no cost, to anyone with a UCID at the UC Bike Kitchen.  The bicycles are available for check out at the UC Bike Kitchen during their normal hours. Bikes can be checked out for up to one week at a time. Late fees are assessed if the bike is not returned by the due date. Replacement costs will be charged to your UC account for bikes lost and stolen.
