Rental Information

This Fall 2021, the University of Waterloo Bike Centre will continue to offer the bicycle rental program. Undergraduate students will have the opportunity to rent one of our rental bicycles at an affordable price for the entire term.

To reserve a chance to rent a bike for the term, you will be required to pay a $20 refundable deposit. You will be contacted within a week and your deposit will be credited to your rental amount. If we are unable to offer you a rental bike, you will be contacted and a refund on your deposit will be issued within 2 weeks.

The rental fee and damage deposit will be payable in cash or debit only when picking up your bike. 

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. 

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.

Note: We have very few small rentals left for now. Please contact us at bikecentre@wusa.ca or via social media for availability of small rentals before booking.


2 & 3 speed bikes:  $45/month or $100/term (plus $250 damage deposit) 
8-speed bikes: Unavailable

Payments and deposits will be payable in cash or debit only when picking up your bicycle.

Each rental bicycle comes with reflectors, front and rear lights, and a U-lock and cable.
