Riding Options on Campus

Bike Share

Atlanta's bike share program, Relay, has over 500 bikes at seventy stations throughout the city and six stations on campus. Relay offers the flexibility to pay-as-you-go or a monthly student rate, with finding and reserving a bike all easily done through the Social Bicycles app.  

Shareable Dockless Devices

Shareable dockless mobility devices are available throughout the City. Riders are encouraged to inspect devices before riding, wear a helmet, and follow all City guidelines regarding safe operation. On campus, devices should be parked beside bike racks and in designated areas.

Purchase a Bike

Whether buying a new or used bike, choose a bike that is safe, fits well, and has appropriate gearing for the hills on campus. Help with repairs and maintenance is available on campus.

Helmet Resources on Campus

Helmets are available for $12 from Parking and Transportation, located at 828 W. Peachtree Street, Monday-Friday from 7:30am-5pm. 

Attendees of the Ride Smart bike/scooter safety class may receive a free helmet thanks to the Jim Kirk Bicycle Safety Fund.

Bike Registration

Registration decals should be placed on the seat or down tube.

Registering your bike will allow you to be contacted if your bike is stolen and recovered. Upon registering, you will be provided a decal for your bike, which should be mounted on your bike's seat tube or down tube (see diagram) and may act as a theft deterrent, as thieves know that the bike can be traced.

How to Lock Your Bike

1. Use a U-lock. U-locks offer the best theft deterrence and are available on campus from Aztec Cycles at the Community Market.

2. Lock your bike to a rack. Bikes locked to objects other than racks may be impounded.

3. Secure lock through frame or rear triangle; do not lock through wheels or any part attached with a quick release.

What do I do if I think my bike has been impounded?

What do I do if my bike is stolen?

Contact GTPD at 404.894.2500. If you are off campus, contact the local police and file a report. If your bike is registered, report the bike as stolen to the registration service, as they may offer additional services to help recover the bike.
