How to Rent a Bike

We rent each of our bikes to a specific individual for a specific rental period for only $15 per month. Here's how to sign up:
  1. Fill out the Green Bikes Application.

  2. Individuals are selected on a first come, first serve basis. Do not email Green Bikes asking if you will be receiving a bike. If you are selected for a Green Bike, you will be notified via email. 

  3. You must sign a rental waiver before you pick up your bike. We cannot give you a bike unless you do so. If you don't pick up your bike in time we'll reassign it!

  4. You will receive an email before the end of your rental period to remind you when and where to return your Green Bike.
