Webster University's Bike Share Program

 

Join us for a Bike Share Kick-Off on March 8th!

Join the Webster University Sustainability Office and campus partners for the grand opening of our first-ever campus bike share program! Come see the bikes, learn how they work, and take home some free coffee, bagels, resources and swag (while supplies last). Compete with your fellow Gorloks in a lap around the quad in our brand new bicycle fleet! In the meantime, you can learn more online at webster.edu/sustainability. The program will open at little to no cost to the campus community to rent bicycles for use on campus and in the Webster Groves area. The kick off is open to all and will be held at 11 am on the University Center patio on Thursday, March 8th

What Can You Expect with Webster Bike Share? 

In an effort to meet the needs of an expanding campus and growing campus community of campus commuters, the Webster University Sustainability Coalition has designed a campus bike share program. The program allows students, faculty, staff, and alumni renting access to bicycles that can use on the college grounds and throughout the Webster Groves area and the surrounding communities. This program is available for free to users for short distance trips. For longer day trips, please see the rates on our reservation page (link below).

By widening the variety of transportation options in the Webster University community, this program expands accessibility to local resources. The increase in bicycle traffic has the ability to reduce automobile traffic and emissions on, and off campus. By openly encouraging a bike culture, we allow for greater campus conservations relating to both health and wellness, and environmental issues.


Bicycle Fixit Station

The sustainability office provides resources for Webster students and faculty to fix up their own bicycles and learn maintenance skills. Also, a Dero  Fixit Bike Service Station has been installed on the University center patio to help Webster bikers perform basic maintenance.

 

Support

Our program is provided at no cost to the Webster University Community for short, two-hour trips, and our day fees are nominal. In order to cover costs for maintenance, repairs, and general upkeep, we rely on donations. Donations help cover these essential costs and keep daily rates low. Please consider donating to this program so we can continue offering free rides to our students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Your gift is tax-deductible and always appreciated!

Gifts could provide a quality bike rack to house the bikes for the program, as well as provide a portion of the user's helmets, locks, bike parts, baskets, individual repair kits, and essential maintenance for each bike. 

Just click on the link below and click on Sustainability at the bottom of the selection list, and write "Bike Share" in the Additional Gift Information section on the donation page. Want to be a sponsor? Contact Kelsey Wingo here
