Yellow Bike Program

The university’s Yellow Bike Program provides free bike rentals to students, staff, and faculty.

Bikes rentals are good for up to seven days, and include a lock, key, and helmet. After seven days of rental, late bikes have a $5.00 daily late fee applied to the patron’s LOUIE account. The Yellow Bike Program currently does not use a waiting list and works on a first come, first serve basis.

After a seven day rental period, patrons must wait one day before re-renting a yellow bike to allow others to make use of the program.
