Yale University has partnered with Noa Technologies (Noa) to provide bikesharing to the campus community. Founded in 2012, Noa is an expert in transportation and fleet management solutions for large organizations. Noa uses a cloud-based fleet management software to provide real-time bike location, status, alerts, and analytics.

Yale students, faculty, and staff members can purchase a bikeshare membership once they have downloaded the Noa Rider App. The App allows users to unlock and lock their bike from a smartphone, which also tracks trips using GPS.

Pricing varies based on the type of membership. A single day (24 hours) costs $4.99. A monthly membership costs $9.99, a six-month plan is $29.99, and a yearly price plan is $49.99. With each membership type, you get unlimited free one-hour rides. After the first hour, there is a $3 charge per additional hour.
