Bike Sharing (BCycle)

Protect Texas Together: BCycle members are strongly encouraged to wash their hands thoroughly after each use. See Austin BCycle’s Reponse to COVID-19 page for steps they are taking to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

BCycle offers a convenient option for bicyclists to get around campus and the city without having to buy or maintain their own bicycle. Members can just borrow a BCycle bike when they need it. Stations are set up throughout campus and the city, and students, faculty, and staff get membership at a heavily discounted rate!

Membership Info 

Membership Signup

  • Annual membership allows unlimited 60-minute rides, and access to any of the 75 BCycle stations and 700 bikes.  
  • Because of the university's partnership with BCycle, all students, faculty, and staff have access to reduced price of only $12 annually. That's a significant discount on the typical full-access annual membership of $86.
  • The signup process is simple: once a student or staff member fills out the University of Texas at Austin Bike Share form, they are sent a promo code, which reduces the price of Local365 annual membership from $86 to $12.
