Bike Share Programs

The Bike Co-op is a student-run organization dedicated to making UBC a better place for cyclists and their bikes.

Purple and Yellows

To become a member of the Bike Co-op you can do 6 hours of volunteer work or pay $15 for students/ $20 for faculty, staff, and community members. With membership, and one night of volunteering at a Tuesday P&Y party from 6-9pm, you can get access to 50-100 public bikes. The Purple and Yellow (P & Y) fleet is located throughout campus. Grab one, and ride to where you want to go. When you’re done with it, lock the bike back up and leave it there for the next person to use.

Call 604.822.BIKE (604.822.2453) for more information, or drop by the bike hub, located on the north side of the SUB (beside the lower entrance). For more updates, please consult their website:
