Bicycling at UCLA
Riding a bicycle is a fun, healthy and inexpensive way to get to campus. You don't have to be an Olympic athlete to get to class or work. There are over 2,900 free bike parking spaces in racks all over campus.
Bruin Bike Share just got bigger. Bruin Bike Share joined the bike share systems of Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and West Hollywood to form Bike Share Connect, LA’s first integrated and seamless regional bike share network. With an expanded network of 830 GPS-connected smart bikes and 135 hub locations across all four systems, Bruin Bike Share is the perfect way to get around. UCLA staff, faculty and students can purchase an annual membership for only $72 a year or a monthly membership for $7 a month. To sign up or for more information, visit our Bruin Bike Share website.
Eligible employees and graduate students can join the Earn-A-Bike program and receive a free $400 bicycle package in exchange for their parking permit. Each package includes a bike as well as a light, lock set, helmet, and Bruin Commuter Club welcome kit.
Similar to traffic school, BruinBikeSmart allows cyclists who received a moving violation citation issued by a UCPD Officer to have their citation dismissed by completing an online bike safety course and paying a $75 course fee.
The UCLA Bike Shop supports the campus’ bicycling community with DIY repairs and a variety of free classes. Visit their website for more information.
