Does the institution have a bicycle-sharing program or participate in a local bicycle-sharing program?:
Yes

A brief description of the program:

The Purple Bikes group promotes cycling at the University of Western Ontario and at large in the London community.
The Bikeshare lends out bicycles, giving people the opportunity to commute to and around campus and tour the city on a bike.
The Bike Workshop is where bikes are remodelled for bikeshare and is also open to the public so they can do their own repairs. With a $5/term workshop membership, the public can gain access to their tools and inventory where they can purchase new and used parts for their bike.
