Metro Transit Offerings
Bike Share Program
Macalester students, staff, and faculty can rent a bike for free (along with a helmet and lock) at the checkout counter in the Library with a valid Mac ID. Bikes are available in three different sizes with adjustable seat post and handles to fit all different riders. The Sustainability Office piloted a need-based semester bikeshare program in 2022 and has been able to continue.
Students in need of a bike more frequently can complete a personal bike request, which provides the opportunity to be given a bike permanently.
MacBike is a student org that works to promote bicycling at Macalester and throughout the Twin Cities. They hold weekly open shops and rides throughout the semester to make biking fun and accessible to everyone.
