Welcome to UWild x Campus Sustainability's U-Bike program.
U-Bike is an affordable way to trial run bike commuting before committing to the purchase of a bike and any necessary accessories. No need to download an app, pay by the ride, or worry if a bike will be available when you need it.
We have partnered with local bike builder Kona Bikes, which helped us select a bike that is comfortable to ride, lightweight, with plenty of gears to tackle Seattle hills. The amazing folks at UW Campus Sustainability supported the purchase of the bikes through a grant which allows us to keep rental costs low.
For those that would like a crash course, er, an anti-crash course on how to commute by bike, UWild and UW Transportation offer a class throughout the year.
U-Bikes may be rented for a minimum of 2-weeks up to an entire quarter:
- $15 (2-weeks)
- $75 for the quarter.
- Optional $25 insurance policy
All bikes come with:
- All-weather disc brakes
- ABUS folding lock and anti-theft quick releases
- Headlight and taillight
- Tire fenders (keep the rain off your back end)
- Optional front grocery bag basket
- Free monthly maintenance
- Storage during times when you're not on campus
The bike fleet is small so don't wait to submit your application!!
