Thanks to everyone who joined Transportation Services, Texas A&M University & the Environmental Issues Committee in April for the second annual Day to Ride – and celebrated Earth Day by switching from horse power to pedal power!
On April 27, ride your bike to school or work, running errands, for exercise or just for fun in a local park! Biking saves gas, keeps you active and helps save the environment!

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.
As of November 18, 2017, Texas A&M Transportation Services requires all bicycles on campus to be registered and show proof of registration by displaying a permit to avoid enforcement action.
Mandatory bike registration includes a required $10 dollar fee applied to each bike registered.

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.
Transportation Services and ofo have partnered to bring dockless bike share to the Texas A&M campus community.
Students, Faculty, and Staff can unlock and ride one of more than 500 yellow ofo bikes located throughout campus.
When you are done with your ride, park it in any bike rack on campus. It’s that simple!
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.
All information regarding bicycles on campus can also be found on our website: transport.tamu.edu/bicycles
