This Fall 2016, the University of Waterloo Bike Centre will continue to offer the bicycle rental program. Undergraduate students will have the opportunity to rent one of 22 bicycles at an affordable price for the entire term.
This term we will be using a lottery system to select those who will be able to rent a bike! To reserve a chance to rent a bike for the term, you will be required to pay a $10 refundable deposit. By purchasing your deposit ticket, you are automatically entered into the lottery. Should you be successful, you will be contacted by September 7th and your deposit will be credited to your rental amount. If you aren't selected, your deposit will be returned to you no later than Sept 30th.
Rental fee and damage deposit will be payable in cash or debit only when picking up your bike. Bike pickup will be Sept 8, Sept 9, and through the week of Sept 12-16.
Each rental bicycle comes with reflectors, front and rear lights, and a U-lock and cable. You are required to prove you have a helmet when you pick up your bike.
Note: If you are an ENVIRONMENT student, you will receive the rental at half price! Proof will be required.
Once you have purchased your deposit, you will be asked for more information to help us ensure we get you the right bike that fits and that you understand how the process works.
2 & 3 speed bikes: $75/term (plus $200 damage deposit)
8-speed bikes: $95/term (plus $300 damage deposit)
Payments and deposits will be payable in cash or debit only when picking up your bicycle.
