Bike Rental Program


Bicycle Rental Program

RUDOTS manages and operates the on-campus bicycle rental program. The first 150 rental bicycles were purchased with a grant from the Rutgers Energy Institute. The rental program’s fleet of bicycles is available to rent at various locations throughout the Rutgers New Brunswick Campus.

Users are required to register for the program prior to renting a bicycle. Once registration is complete, users may log in to the automated bicycle rental system and check out bicycles.

Log  into the bicycle rental automated system here to register and rent a bicycle today.
