WolfWheels Bike Rental Program

During the Spring 2010 semester, a collection of students and campus departments came together to launch an innovative campus bike rental program called WolfWheels. The program offers an affordable, healthy, and environmentally friendly transportation option to anyone with a campus ID. Bicycles are available for one-day, weekend, weekly, and semester-long rentals through Campus Recreation’s Outdoor Adventures office.

WolfWheels has a great deal of support from the University administration and from the campus community. In the first five months, the program rented 272 bikes to 123 students, 117 employees, and 6 campus affiliates. WolfWheels continues to utilize the participation of students to help market the program and maintain the bicycles.

The NC State partners who helped develop the program include Campus Enterprises, Campus Recreation, Carmichael Complex Facilities Operations, Transportation, Inter-Residence Council, Cycling Club, Sustainability Commission of Student Government, University Student Center Board of Directors, University Sustainability Office, and Energy Management.
