Tulane University has many bike racks distributed throughout campus for students to lock up and store their bikes. The Reily Recreation Center, as well as several academic buildings, have shower facilities for students and faculty who choose to bike to the university.
Bicycle racks are provided throughout the university.
Students will have the option of renting a bike for the entire semester or one day at a time though the Green Bike Program. While daily bike rentals will be free, semester-long rentals will cost a small fee that will be determined once the pilot program begins and maintenance costs are gauged. At the end of each semester when students leave campus, the Tulane Police Department confiscates all of the bikes that are left behind. The Green Bike Program will reuse those unclaimed bikes by offering them to students for rental. (http://tulane.edu/news/newwave/012414_bikes.cfm).
The Tulane University Shuttles and Transportation system provides over 250,000 rides annually to the university community. They offer commuter connections between the uptown, health sciences and university square campuses, special shuttles to shopping and entertainment venues, and they transport students, faculty and staff involved in service learning projects to their partner sites throughout the area. In addition, they provide payable group transportation to university departments and student organizations
Through Enterprise’s membership-based car sharing program, three Toyota Prius hybrids are available to Tulane and Loyola students and employees. Members can reserve the cars online and rent them by the hour or day. To sign up, visit http://www.wecar.com. Tulane University and Enterprise also have an agreement which offers discounted car rental to faculty, staff, students, parents and university visitors. The agreement also enables students 18-24 to rent cars
A ChargePoint Electric Vehicle Charging Station has been installed in the Diboll parking garage on the Uptown campus. It is the third parking spot on the right side after you enter the garage. A Tulane permit is required M-F, 8 am-5:30 pm to park in the garage. The electricity is free; however, the parking spot is metered 24hours/7 days a week in order to be available frequently for electric vehicle charging use.
The students who operate the Bike Repair Help Desk support sustainable transportation by teaching other students and university community members how to maintain and repair their bikes.
