Shared Bike/Scooter Program Ends For Season
Tuesday, November 15, 2022 - 09:31
Parking & Transportation Services hopes that the shared bike and scooter program helped you to get around campus this fall. With the first significant snowfall in the Twin Cities, the bike and scooter sharing season will end immediately for safety purposes. The program will resume again in spring (exact date is weather-dependent).
 
If you have not taken advantage of annual discounted student/staff rates for bike and scooter sharing, please consider these special pricing offers just for our University community. All approved campus vendors offer this special deal, so you choose which one you like best!
 
If you received one of our Travel Plan Survey invitations, please respond by November 21. Your feedback is valuable to us!
