Biking Programs at Mason

  • Register your bike with Parking and Transportation to receive a free U-lock, bike lights and safety information.  Student registration is valid for 5 years and for faculty/staff, the registration is valid for the duration of their employment.  Students who live off-campus and do not own a parking permit will also receive 2 daily complimentary parking passes (general lots) per semester upon registering their bike.
  • Bike Commuter Choice (Faculty/Staff only): Faculty and staff are eligible for 3 different tiers of support based upon how often and how far you bike to work.
  • Patriot Bike Check Out Program: New!  Beginning 8/26/19 - Check out one of ten bikes available at the RAC/AFC at no cost Monday through Thursday for a one-day check-out by showing your valid Mason ID.  Check it out on Friday or Saturday and have it until Sunday night.  Check a bike out at either location and return it to the one that is most convenient. This pilot is brought to the Mason community by Mason Recreation, the Office of Sustainability, and Parking & Transportation.
