BikeShare at UB

Social Bicycle

Bike share reduces carbon emissions and encourages a healthy lifestyle at UB.

Sign Up For BikeShare at UB!

UB is pleased to offer an innovative bike share program to students, faculty, and staff. Join today--it's just $15 for an annual membership!

BikeShare at UB, powered by Social Bicycles, offers a GPS-enabled bike that you can locate and borrow using your computer. Use it to get around and between UB's campuses. 


How It Works


It's simple! Just find and unlock a bike online or by entering your account information directly into the keypad on the lockbox of the bike.

Once the correct pincode is entered, the lock is disengaged and the bike is ready to be used!

When you are finished riding, slide the u-bar into the lock, and the bike notifies the system that your ride is over and the bike is available to others!

Improving Bicycling Culture at UB

The Bicycling at UB Committee, comprised of staff members from Sustainability, Campus Living, Parking & Transportation Services, Wellness, UBPD and Facilities represents the interest of bicyclists on campus.  Our objectives are to improve the facilities (bike racks), infrastructure (shared roadways and bike lanes) and amenities (fix-it stands and winter storage for bicycles) for bicyclists on the North and South campuses, and in between.  Cyclists welcome!
