Central Michigan offers electric Spin scooters as an option for on-campus travel.

Central Sustainability aims to develop and introduce a Bike Benefits program in spring 2024. A Bike Benefits program asks participants to put a Bike Benefits sticker on their helmets, then they can show the helmet sticker to participating local businesses to get deals, proving they used motorless travel to get there. The program aims to build a connection between the CMU community and the downtown Mount Pleasant community by encouraging visiting local businesses and boosting the local economy. The program also aims to to decrease carbon emissions and increase physical activity by encouraging more motorless transport among CMU students.

We hope to see electric vehicle charging stations on campus and in the Mount Pleasant community in 2024!
