Bike Share

Do you want to visit the waterfront, but don’t want to walk? Did you find a job in town, but don’t have a car on campus? Do you find yourself running across campus for classes or meetings and want a quicker way? Do you enjoy long bike rides in the sunset light? 

Welcome to Bike Share! This program was set up by the SGA as a way for students to have FREE access to bicycles while the school year is in session. Once registered for the program, students will have access to the bike fleet for the whole semester. The bikes must be checked back in once a week for maintenance checks and redistribution. Each comes with a bike lock and key to help ensure the safety of the bikes. 

Q&A

How can I register and begin using the program? 

 

To check out a bike..

1. Print and fill out the attached flyer.

2. Head over to Public Safety (Located on the lower level of Wicomico Residence House)

3. Sign in with the following information:

  • Name
  • ID #
  • Date checked out
  • Date to be returned
  • Bike #
  • Helmet taken

4. Lastly, we want to prevent bikes from being stolen during the rental period, so please don’t forget to have it locked to a bike rack!

What do I do if there’s a problem with the bike?

Please inform Samantha Howell by e-mail (showell3@washcoll.edu). You should also report any issues to the Public Safety dispatcher on duty when you are checking the bike back in. 

If the bike is damaged or stolen while it is in your care, you will be responsible for the charges associated with either fixing or replacing the bike, as stated in the terms and conditions. 

Where can I take the bike?

You are welcome to use the bike on campus and around the Chestertown area, including a trip to the movies or the grocery store. We ask that you not transport the bikes out of town for any longer trips. 

How long can I keep the bike?

You are welcome to use the bike for up to a week. You can keep it for just an afternoon, overnight, or multiple days. The bike will need to be back at the Public Safety Bike Share rack a week after it was checked-out. If you are ever unsure when you need to return it, you can e-mail Samantha Howell (showell3@washcoll.edu) or stop by Public Safety.
