Bike Share Program

Bicycling engages students with the outdoors and the community at large, and cycling is a wonderful way to combine three things: fitness, recreation, and transportation. Bicycling has been part of SIUE since its inception. The Delyte Morris Trail was part of the original plan for the campus and connects to the Madison County Transit Trail System and Edwardsville.

The SIUE Bike Share 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 at SIUE toward increased reliance on non-carbon modes of transportation in addition to providing a recreational opportunity to be active outside. This program provides SIUE students with the opportunity to explore the SIUE campus, see how advantageous a bike can be and rediscover the fun of bike riding. 

Bikes can be seasonally checked out through the Student Fitness Center Equipment Issue service counter approximately from after spring break through November 1st

Bikes may also be available through the Information Desk at the Morris University Center. Call first for availability-618-650-5555.
