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. The program offers free bike rentals any current students, faculty, and staff. Our goal is to make biking more accessible to the 10,000+ students that call Charleston home.

The program was first launched in the Fall 2013 semester with eight bikes, but after a successful first year the fleet has doubled and has had more than 2,000 uses!

Our bikes are located 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!
