BikeUT is currently unavailable due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A plan for the reopening of BikeUT is currently in development and will be communicated upon completion.
BikeUT is a University-wide free bike rental program created to promote outdoor physical activity and sustainable transportation options. Housed by the Office of Campus Recreation and supported by Student Government, the program offers the campus community the opportunity to rent the bikes on a daily basis with a valid Spartan ID.
Take our bikes off campus for a short ride to the park, for some exercise along the 4.5-mile Bayshore Boulevard lining Tampa Bay, to pick up some groceries at the Tampa Downtown Market or just hop on a bike to get across campus to class. Check out Tampa Bay's newest spot for exercise enthusiasts at the Tampa Bay Riverwalk!
The bikes are meant to be shared. So rent one, ride it, return it and repeat as much as you want.
Rentals are equipped with a helmet and bike lock for rider safety. City Bike Tampa offers a 10 percent discount to UT students who desire to purchase their own helmet and lock.
Hours of Operation
BikeUT is currently unavailable. New hours of operation will be communicated upon completion of the reopening plan.
Under normal conditions, bikes may be rented seven days a week during the fall and spring semesters only. The rental program relies on student employees and therefore, the hours may vary from semester to semester based on their academic schedules. All bicycles must be returned by the end of rental operation the same day to avoid late fees. Please remember to lock up the bikes safely using a bike rack.
