Established in the spring of 2015, the ASMSU Bike Share Program is an effort to provide free, non-vehicular transportation options to students with a low cost, effective bike share rental service.  The Bike Share Program is a partnership between RHS, REHS, Recreation Sports and Fitness Services, Student Affairs and Services, Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities, MSU Bikes and ASMSU.

Currently, the Bike Share Program has 40 bicycles and 1 hand-cycle in operation.

Bike Share bikes are available at the following front desk locations:

  • Bailey Hall
  • Butterfield Hall
  • Snyder Hall
  • North Hubbard Hall
  • East Wilson Hall

Renting a bike is now easier and more accessible than ever before! Follow these simple steps to make your next commute to class seamless!

  1. Sign the waiver above with your MSU email and save the confirmation email from ASMSU.

  3. Present the waiver confirmation email to the Service Center Representative

  6. Unlock the bike from the designated ASMSU Bike Share rack
  7. The bike can be rented out for a maximum of 7 hours or until 8 p.m. and the bike must be returned to the same hall/rack where it was rented out at.
