50 shared-use bicycles have been made available to the Yale community through the university’s partnership with Zagster, which provides city cruiser-style bicycles, registration and reservation software and maintenance services.

The program works very much the same way as Zipcar:

  • Register with Zagster with your valid Yale email address
  • Reserve via Zagster’s mobile app, or by texting Zagster from the bike’s location
  • Return the bike to the same location from which you picked it up
The bikes are available in 10 locations conveniently located across the Central and Medical School campuses. Click here to view the locations of each “pod” of bicycles. To register, you need to provide a credit card and a mobile phone number, in addition to your valid Yale email address.

As of August 2016, Zagster offers several new membership options to Yale students, faculty, and staff:

  • Annual membership: $45
  • 30 day pass: $10
  • 24 hour pass: $5

With each membership option, all trips under two hours are free. After the first two hours, rides are $3/hour. Start riding today!

Yale bikesharing was piloted for a 6-month period, and was determined to be a great addition to the menu of campus mobility options. Please provide feedback on locations and any other aspect of the program by emailing
