Tufts Bikes

Tisch Library, in partnership with the student group Tufts Bikes, lends bikes to current Tufts students, faculty, and staff.

How do I borrow a bike?

Each year you must submit a Tufts Bike waiver form at the Tisch Library Main Desk in order to be able to borrow bikes.

Go to the Tisch Library Main Desk to borrow a helmet and bike lock key. The bike lock key will have a tag with a number on it, identifying which bike you’ve borrowed.

Bikes 1-16 are located on the Tisch Library patio, and bikes 17-24 are on the Campus Center patio.

How long can I borrow a bike?

You can borrow a bike for 8 hours at a time. If the Library is closed before then, the bike will be due when the library opens the next day.

Always remember to lock your bike when you are not riding it.

Return your bike to its corresponding numbered slot, and return your key and helmet at the Main Desk.

We have helmets.

You can get one when you borrow a bike. In fact, we require that you wear a helmet when riding one of our bikes.
