Bicycling at UCLA



Put Traffic Jams Behind You

Riding a bicycle is a fun, healthy and inexpensive way to get to and around campus. There are over 3,500 free bike parking spaces in racks all over campus and with newly added bike lanes, bicycling around UCLA has never been easier!

Eligible employees and graduate students can join the Earn-A-Bike program and receive a free $450 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.




UCLA BruinBike Smart

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.
