Cyclists and Walkers enjoy health benefits and save money by utilizing a commute mode that provides reliable transportation and is environmentally friendly.

Participants in the Cyclist program must have their bicycle registered to receive incentives. Transportation and Parking Services provides FREE bicycle license registration to students, faculty, and staff.  Stop by the Parking Services building Monday through Friday, 8 AM - 4 PM to register and license your bicycle.
