FAQ's

You can find information about bike lanes on campus by clicking here.

When riding a bicycle in the road you are considered a vehicle. Always ride on the right side of the road while on campus.

We have thousands of bike racks across campus. Here is a map that can help find the closest one to you.

Nearly all the racks on campus are 24hr parking. That said, we do have a few no overnight racks that are labeled with large white lettering across the top-tube which reads “No bike parking from 11:00pm to 6:00am.” If there is no sign or writing on a rack then it is okay to use for overnight parking. It’s important to keep in mind though that racks on campus are for bicycles currently in use only. All abandoned bicycle will be removed.

You should always lock your bike when not using it on campus. We highly recommend using a hardened steel U-lock.

We highly recommend getting your bicycle registered with the university as it helps protect your bicycle if it is ever lost or stolen and recovered.

Simply give the Alternative Transportation office a call (979)847-2453 and schedule an appointment to visit the impound. There is no charge associated with retrieving a bicycle from the impound.

You can find more information about bike laws here.

If you just want to use a bicycle for the day the university offers a “Borrow-A-Bike” program. Through this program students can borrow a bicycle free of charge up to 24hr. If you need a bicycle for an extended period of time the university also offers a bicycle lease program. For $50 a semester the student receives a bicycle, u-lock, and cable. For more information about either of these programs please visit our website.

Borrow a Bike is a free program for those that need the use of a bike for a short period of time. If you borrow a bike today, it is due back by 10:00 a.m. the next morning. If you borrow a bike on Friday, it's not due until the following Monday! Customers who do not return their bike by 10:00 a.m. will be charged a $5 late fee. Customers may borrow a bike 12 times per semester.

The program is free to anyone employed by or currently enrolled at Texas A&M University.

The Borrow a Bike program is a basic form of bike share. We ask the Aggie community members that use the program to be conscious about bringing back the bike when you are finished using it so it is available to another Aggie that may need a bike.

Simply stop by our Customer Assistance Center located in 108 Koldus Monday- Friday 8am- 5pm and sign in to borrow a bike and return it to the same location when you are done.
