FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
With bike share stations at Rice University, HCC and UHD, and more coming to University of Houston and TSU, Houston BCycle now offers $25 per semester Student Memberships.
Houston Bike Share, City of Houston Planning & Development and Rice University have partnered together to bring bike share to the Rice University Campus. In late October, Houston BCycle stations were installed at Gibbs Recreation and Wellness Center, West Lot and Greenbriar Lot. Five additional stations will be added to the Rice University campus in the coming months, along with stations at the University of Houston and Texas Southern University. With so many new campus stations, Houston BCycle has rolled out Student Memberships for only $25 per semester. Student memberships allow unlimited access to Houston BCycle’s 400 bikes across 51 stations, 24 hours a day. Whether moving across campus or commuting from home to school, the BCycle network will provide convenient transportation for students and faculty members at Rice University and all other local campuses.
“Our vision is that Rice is able to offer its students access to enough high-quality mobility services that they will not need nor want to own a car when they come to Rice. BCycle is a key component of that vision. It’s mobility on demand, without having to own the bike itself. We’re excited to be part of the bicycle-sharing network in Houston and believe that it will only deepen our engagement with the city, and vice versa.” - Richard Johnson, director of Rice’s Administrative Center for Sustainability and Energy Management
Lisa Lin, program manager of the Transportation Demand Management Department at Rice: "As we work to encourage our employees to choose more sustainable commutes to campus, Houston BCycle comes at a perfect time, adding to the list of active transportation choices we have at Rice University. These bikes are a great option to use to get to a meeting or even use as a wellness activity for our faculty and staff. It’s wonderful to see the growing connectivity and excitement of the BCycle program, and we’re proud to promote it to our Rice community.”
