Free daily check-out of a bike, lock, and helmet for UofL students and employees from a variety of campus locations.
UofL's Bike-Share Program is designed to help you ditch the car and discover the joys of getting around on two wheels! The program is open to all UofL students, faculty, and staff. Bikes are available whenever you need them and for whatever purpose, whether it's getting across campus, across town, or just out for some fun!
Use your UofL ID to check out a bike, lock (and helmet at some locations) for free for the day! Most bike also come with baskets for carrying items. Bikes are available each day on a first-come, first-served basis from the desk staff at 11 different locations around campus:

- Bettie Johnson Hall

The BikeShare Program at ULH, Inc. helps to support the broader vision of sustainability for on-campus housing. ULH strives to incorporate holistic sustainability initiatives in as many internal processes and procedures as is feasible. Thus, we offer the BikeShare program in collaboration with the UofL Sustainability Council as part of our goal to provide sustainable programmatic opportunities to the entire residential community. Sustainability is a vital piece to living on campus and ULH is thrilled to have a fleet of bikes to help support this piece of our overall departmental mission of supporting and developing student leaders.
In all locations, you'll simply sign a waiver form and return the bike before the end of the day or weekend. Those who check out bikes are responsible for any theft/loss/damage, so be sure to use the lock to securely lock the bike (frame and wheel!) any time you leave it behind.
