This Spring 2020, the University of Waterloo Bike Centre will continue to offer the bicycle rental program. Students will have the opportunity to rent one of our beautiful Norco bicycles at an affordable price for the entire term.
We provide all maintenance for the bikes, and make sure the bike is properly fitted to you. Adjustments and tune-ups throughout the term are included at no charge, simply contact us to set up an appointment.
Rental fee and damage deposit will be payable in cash, credit or debit when picking up your bike. Bike pickup times will be communicated with you at the start of the spring term.
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. You will also be required to understand how to lock your bike properly through demonstration and that you understand where it is appropriate to lock your bike.
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. We will be contacting renters in early May to set up appointments to sign out a bike.
Deposits are only refunded if we are unable to provide you with a bike.
ALL BIKES: $100/term (plus $250 refundable damage deposit)
Payments and deposits will be payable in cash, debit and credit when picking up your bicycle.
