Cyclist or Walker Program

Walker Cyclist2

Cyclists and Walkers save money, reduce their carbon footprint, and enjoy certain health benefits. UCR supports "Active Transportation" and offers a Cyclist and Walker Program designed to make these zero-emission commute modes a better choice. 

Plan your bike trip with Google Maps .  Here you can find routes, calculate mileage, and estimate travel time. 

Faculty, Staff and Graduate Students 

Faculty and staff with a minimum 50% appointment or full-time graduate students are eligible to participate in the Cyclist and Walker Program. Applicants may not hold a daytime commuter parking permit and must reside within walking / cycling distance from campus.

You must enroll in the Alternative Transportation Program to receive incentives. Eligibility of incentives is subject to verification using University electronic records.

Participants in the Cyclist program must first have their bicycle registered before they can enroll in the Alternative Transportation Program and receive incentives. Transportation and Parking Services provides FREE bicycle license registration to students, faculty, and staff.  Bring your bicycle to one of our Bicycle Registration Events or to the Parking Services building Monday through Friday, 8 AM - 4 PM to register and license your bicycle.
