University at Albany


The Office of Sustainability, Residential Life, and Campus Recreation have teamed up to provide the UAlbany campus with a bike share program. Started in 2009, the program has grown to have over 30 bikes that can be signed out by students for free! The bikes can be rented from the Physical Education Building.

After signing an annual insurance waiver, all you need is your SUNY Card and you can sign out a bike. Fill out the information in the bike log and you're good to go! The bikes can be used on and off campus.

  1. Rental is free of charge.
  2. Bikes cannot be reserved for a set time. Bikes are signed out on a first come, first served basis.
  3. User indemnifies the university and agrees to replacement costs in the case of loss.
  4. User agrees to use bicycle responsibly, according to all applicable laws.

Signing out a bike: Students interested in signing out a bike can go to the Physical Education Building near SEFCU Arena. Students must show their ID and give their information that is listed on the Log-In Sheet. Once information is completely taken, the student is given a key to the bike lock, and a helmet.  The student is obligated to take the helmet but cannot be mandated to wear it. Therefore, the student must initial next to the line on the waiver to indicate that they did not rent the helmet.
Waiver: Students must sign the waiver form that is agreeing to the terms of the program. By signing the waiver form, students are accepting accountability for participating in the program. Only one waiver needs to be signed for the entire year.
