Proposed Bike-Sharing Kiosk Locations

Proposed Bike-Sharing Kiosk Locations

This is a map with the tentative locations we would like to see bike-sharing kiosks set up at UIUC (click to view the full map)! We’re going for a more condensed system right now since those tend to be the most successful bike-sharing programs–nobody wants to go out of their way to get to their final destinations, and having frequent and convenient bike kiosks is one way to go!

  • Newmark Laboratories
  • Illini Union
  • Illinois Street Residence Halls (ISR)
  • Undergraduate Library (UGL)
  • Campus Recreation Center East (CRCE)
  • Sherman Hall
  • Student Dining and Residential Programs (SDRP)
  • Activities Recreation Center (ARC)
  • Pennsylvania or Florida Residence Halls (PAR/FAR)

We suggest that the program first start with movable bike stations, much like how it’s done in Paris’ Velib, or at least until the locations with the greatest need for shared bikes is identified.

  1. Agreed- this is great! I’d love to see something in either of the down-towns too. I’ve been working on a parallel program at the YMCA, and would be interested in how the current departmental systems (including the Y’s, which will launch in march) can scale up to something on the scale I think we’d all like to see.
