Biking at Emory



Emory supports a bicycling culture for those who cycle to work, and those who bicycle around campus. Consider cycling to work or class as a healthier alternative to driving.

Emory's bicycle commuter program provides incentives to employees and graduate students who choose to cycle instead of driving to campus. Once cyclists register, they receive a back-up commute option, which will allow them to park on/transport to campus in the event of inclement weather.

    Rules & Regulations


    • It is the policy of Emory University to remove bicycles and/or other vehicles secured in any way to objects other than designated bike racks. This policy applies specifically to railings, handrails, and guardrails, especially those railings or other objects that may be required by persons with mobility impairments.

    • Bicycles parked in areas that restrict egress for life safety purposes or in any area that would impede or restrict pedestrian or vehicular traffic will be subject to impoundment. Bicycles that are abandoned for more than thirty (30) days in a bike rack will be impounded.

    • Bicycles leased through Bike Emory must be secured with a U-lock. To properly lock the bike, loop the U-lock through the frame of the bicycle and attach it to a loop in the bike rack before securing the lock. For an example of how to properly secure the bicycle, please watch this video.

     

    • The University is not responsible for damage to locking devices that require removal because they are secured to objects other than designated bike racks or are abandoned. If the bicycle is registered with Emory Police or the National Bike Registry, the owner will be contacted at the residence on file.

    • Confiscated bicycles will be held for thirty (30) days, after which the bicycles will be recycled.


    • Please reference the Bike Emory General Guidelines for more information.


    Walking



    Walking to work is one of the healthiest and most inexpensive commute options available. In addition to incentives for walkers, Emory is providing more showers and changing areas on campus for those commuters who walk and bicycle to work. Walkers can also get around campus via Enterprise CarShare, Bike Emory's Bike Share program and Emory's Cliff shuttles.
