The program will offer 50 bicycles at more than a dozen stations on campus. The stations will be located near residence halls, offices, bus stops, parking lots and garages, and other areas popular among commuter students.

Users can buy a yearly membership for $25. Then they punch in a code on a mobile app to check out bikes at a station. Riders will make their trip and check the bikes in at another station.
