The Bulldog Bike Share offers an easy way to travel around campus while avoiding traffic and reducing emissions from single-occupancy cars.

The GPS-enabled, electric pedal-assist bikes are located at hubs across campus and can be rented using the Lyft mobile app. Each bike features individual locks for safety and the ability to park at designated hubs listed in the Lyft app.

Riders can download the app from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store to register, locate, and unlock the bikes.

Please note that Bulldog Bike Share bicycles are not allowed on UGA bus bike racks.

You should ride bikes on the street or in designated bike lanes. Be sure to adhere to all traffic laws and be mindful of vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists around you.

When accessing sidewalks or crosswalks, bicyclists must walk with their bicycles in these spaces, as sidewalks and crosswalks are reserved for pedestrian use only, not for actively riding a bicycle.

Remember, bikes should never be left in front of doorways, walkways, or ADA-accessible areas like ramps.

When you’re done with a bike, return it to a designated parking location and end your ride in the Lyft app.

There are more than 100 designated locations where you can park your bike. You can see all parking locations in the Lyft app.

You will continue to be charged per minute until the bike is returned to a designated location and the ride is ended in the app.

Failure to return a bike to a designated parking location will result in the following penalties:

1st offense     warning     
2nd offense $10 fine
3rd offense $25 fine
4th offense account suspension for one month
