Yes

A brief description of the program:

The Columbia University Bike Share Pilot was launched with 8 bikes reclaimed and repurposed by Public Safety. The current bike share is only open to students but there are plans to expand it to the rest of campus. Student participants signed liability wavers, received safety training and volunteers repair the bikes . Students are held financially responsible for lost bikes or bike parts via a hold on their account organized through Housing. A bike share volunteer is “on call” for help with check-out or maintenance issues during the open hours for the bike share.
