About the Program

The CofC Bike Share program is temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. If you're in need of a bike, check out our Community Bike Resources for more information. 

The College of Charleston Bike Share was developed by a student-led team. The program was 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. After the first year, the fleet doubled and has had more than 2,000 uses! In the fall of 2018, we launched a long term bike share program, which means students and faculty can borrow a bike for a semester. This program was able to launch thanks to the Student Government Association.

We offer two different ways for students and faculty to rent bikes: Short-Term and Long-Term.  Short-term bikes can be rented out for up to 48 hours, while long-term bikes can be rented for a semester.  Our short term bikes are located outside of the Stern Student Center, which is the location for the Short Term Bike CofC Bike Share check in/check out. For the long term bike share program, you can check bikes in and out at the Office of Sustainability at 14 Greenway. To check in/out the long term bikes make an appointment by emailing cofcbikeshareintern@gmail.com.

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!
