Does the institution have a bicycle-sharing program or participate in a local bicycle-sharing program?:

A brief description of the program:

Tufts Bikes provides approximately 30 bikes, locks, helmets, and lights that can be checked out by anyone with a Tufts ID, through the library. Bikes can be kept for a period of up to 24 hours, and then returned to the same location. Rental is free, but late fees are charged. Tufts Bikes also provides a bike workshop space in the Craft Center, with professional tools for anyone to use and open shop hours where members of the group offer classes on safety and maintenance, and help people with their own bike repairs.

Bike Share bikes are kept in sheltered bike racks in front of the library and at the campus center.
