Bike Share, Bike Racks, and Bike Shelters
Stony Brook University encourages the use of bicycles, and provides a number of resources for residents, including our Bike Share locations, where you may borrow bikes for 60 minute intervals, and the bike racks and shelters where you can keep your own bike, which are located throughout the campus. Included below is information regarding these resources. For more information about biking at Stony Brook, click here.
Wolf Ride Bike Share
The SBU Wolf Ride Bike Share is a bicycle sharing program begun by the Stony Brook University Environmental Stewardship Office in Spring 2011 to reduce our carbon footprint, promote healthier habits, and reduce the need for vehicles on campus roadways. The program allows participants to use a bike for up to 60 minutes at a time after subscribing to the program. All current students have a complimentary subscription covered by their transportation fee, but will be charged additional fees if they exceed the 60 minute limit. Faculty, staff, and visitors can purchase a daily, weekly, monthly, or annual subscription at any bike share station with the use of a credit card, and will also be charged an additional fee for exceeding the 60 minute limit.

Bike Racks and Shelters
There are currently many bike racks and shelters spread across campus, with more being installed all the time. It is important that bikes are kept at either a bike rack or shelter when not in use. Bikes which are kept in unauthorized locations will be put in storage. It is also suggested that you register your bike with the Office of Risk Management, which can help identify your bike if it is lost or stolen.
