Welcome to UWild x Campus Sustainability Fund - 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 the UW Campus Sustainability Fund 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!!
