The University’s bike share benefit has been extended to all students living on campus through the end of April 2020.

Pitt has partnered with Healthy Ride, Pittsburgh’s bike share system, to provide unlimited 30-minute rides. This is an extension of a benefit originally available only to first-year residents.

First-year students who activated Healthy Ride accounts under the original benefit can continue to ride through April.

“Due to COVID-19, we are able to redistribute the benefit to all students remaining on campus for the rest of the semester,” said Aurora Sharrard, director of sustainability. “By extending the Healthy Ride benefit to them, we’re ensuring that biking is an option for their critical transportation needs as well as for physical activity and wellbeing.” 

Students are urged to be mindful of Gov. Tom Wolf’s stay at home orders and to maintain social distancing practices when riding. Healthy Ride has posted guidance for riders for avoiding the spread of COVID-19.
