Rocket Wheels, the new bike-sharing program that launched this month, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony today by Rocket Hall near the horse sculptures just south of the University Parks Trail.
Sponsored by the Office of the Provost, Rocket Wheels allows students to check out bikes on Main Campus at three locations: near the northeast entrance of Rocket Hall, by the south entrance of Palmer Hall and on the northeast side of West Parking Garage. Bikes must be returned to the same location from where they were checked out.
Registration is free and is available to all UT students in good standing. To register, visit utoledo.edu/rocket-wheels. Processing may take up to 48 hours.
Bikes can be checked out for four-hour intervals Monday through Friday and eight-hour intervals Saturday and Sunday. A $10 hourly fee will be issued if the bikes are not returned within the given time or after operating hours. Rocket Wheels will be available from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. during fall, spring and summer semesters. Availability will change to 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. from December through March and will be dependent on weather conditions.
