Commuting

bikeUMD was created to build and support the bicycle commuter community on campus.

Find a Commute Partner

The bikeUMD blog has information about current bicycle commuters and their routes. For more information email vgoubeau@umd.edu

Bike Commuter Shower Pass

Showers are available at the Eppley Recreation Center. If you do not have a campus recreation membership you are eligible for a Bike Commuter Shower Pass. This pass provides access to locker rooms in Ritchie for registered bicycle commuters. Contact Lawrence Moody (lpm@umd.edu) for information on how to register.

Sharrows

Sharrows are shared-lane markings indicating where a cyclist has the right to ride. These have just been installed on campus in College Park. We want you to learn more about Sharrows, so click here to let the education experience begin.

Bikes on the Bus

All but 2 buses in the Shuttle-UM fleet have bike racks on the front of the bus.
