Bicycling has been part of SIUE since its inception. The Morris Trail was part of the original plan for the campus. The trail connects to the Madison County Transit Trail System and Edwardsville. Bicycling engages students with the outdoors and the community at large. Furthermore, cycling is a wonderful way to combine three things: fitness, recreation, and transportation. The program officially launched on Thursday, April 22, 2010 as part of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. The mission of the bike share program is to encourage a culture shift in SIUE students, faculty, and staff toward increased reliance on non-carbon modes of transportation. This program will provide those who do not own bicycles with the opportunity to explore the SIUE campus and see how advantageous a bike can be while rediscovering the fun of bike-riding.
SAG has purchased thirty American-made Worksman bicycles for its fleet. These are durable, reliable, and safe bikes with a proven track record in the bike share industry.All currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff are eligible to check out a bike. An online application must be filled out and approved prior to first checkout.
The application process will take approximately 24 hours. You should receive an email indicating approval.
Application and approval is good for entire semester. You must reapply every semester.
Bikes will be checked out at the Student Fitness Center and are available for day use; all bikes must be returned the same day to their rented location.
