Bicycle-Sharing (Nice Ride)

Green Nice Ride bicycles can be checked out from public kiosks and returned to any other Nice Ride location.

Annual memberships are available for $75, but riders can also choose to purchase a 3-day pass for $10 with unlimited 30-minute rides, or simply rent a bike for $4 per half hour.

The program runs from April through November.

There are more than 10 locations on campus along with more than 100 other locations (Uptown, downtown Minneapolis and more!).
