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

A brief description of the program, including an indication of its scope (e.g., the number of bicycles the program makes available, participation levels, etc.):

There are several programs that make bicycles available to the campus community and visitors.

The ASUCD Bike Barn has a fleet of over 200 rental bicycles. Many are used by campus visitors, especially those who attend conferences and meetings over a several day period. Additional rental bicycles are secured by the Bike Barn to accommodate large conferences.

TAPS holds two bicycle auctions annually, plus occasional eBay® auctions. At the biannual public auctions, over 400 abandoned bicycles are sold to be refurbished and re-used. These are bikes that are impounded as abandoned bikes from all over campus. Attempts are made to contact the owners, but most unclaimed bikes are then sold through the auctions. More information: http://taps.ucdavis.edu/bicycle/auctions/

Numerous departments on campus offer a bike share, although there is not a campus-wide bike share program. For example, 6 bicycles are available for use for employees of Student Housing,at least 10 bicycles in good working order at multiple locations are available to employees of the Administrative and Resource Management unit, and at least one bicycle in good working order is available to employees of the Extension office.
