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

A brief description of the bicycle sharing program:

We launched a bike share program in 2016 and it ran with three stations on campus from 2016 to Spring 2018. Unfortunately, the company went out of business and the system is no longer in service. We are actively searching for a replacement service and are working with the city to develop guidelines and bring scooter-share companies to Lafayette. These companies will be allowed to operate on campus within specific user and parking guidelines and students will be encouraged to rent devices vs. driving or ridesharing downtown.
