About the Program
The College of Charleston Bike Share was developed by a student-led team, with organizational and planning support from the Office of Sustainability. It's founded on the idea that bicycling can be a safe, healthy, sustainable, and fun way to get around campus and around Charleston.
After months of hard work and dedication, the campus bike share program was revealed during Sustainability Week 2013! The program was fully launched the first day of classes for the Fall 2013 semester. Office of Sustainability Director Dr. Fisher discussed the evolution of the Bike CofC Bike Share program, and Facilities Coordinator Jen Jones enjoyed a King of Pops popsicle while trying out one of the new bikes. Unable to resist all of the fun that cycling has to offer, Dr. Fisher too took a ride outside of the Stern Student Center, which is the location for the Bike CofC Bike Share check in/check out.
As a Bike CofC participant, you can show your Cougar Card to check out one of our lightweight Isla Vista cruisers from the Stern Student Center, keep the bike for the day, and return the bike back to the Student Center information desk.
To sign up for the program and gain access to unlimited bike rental you must first watch the online safety video and sign a liability waiver. But it's fast and easy. You'll be on one of our bikes in no time!
