BikeShare is run with the help of volunteers and a limited number of part-time staff members. With limited help we can only offer hours of operation which work for our volunteers and staff.
Stop by our office during our hours of operation. Registration takes about 2 minutes and after that you're good to go! Please have your student number or personnel number for registration.

Yes, bikes may be taken off-campus as long as they are returned on time.
We only allow one sign-out per person to allow the maximum accessibility to the UTM community. However, exceptions can be made under pre-arranged circumstances. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. Staff hold discretion over requests.
It is possible, but it also depends on the demand at the time. Please email us at email@example.com with your request.
We must log your return, check for possible damages to the bike and ensure that the bike is properly locked on the designated BikeShare racks. This ensures safety of the bikes and prevents wrongful fines or warnings!
There is $2.50 late fee, payable in cash only, for each day you are late. Renting privileges are suspended until all late fees are paid in full.
After three late returns, you will be banned from using UTM BikeShare services.
If a bicycle is not returned and we are unable to contact you within a week of the due date, the bicycle will be reported as stolen to campus police and any consequences associated with the theft will be the responsibility of the individual.
There will be a replacement fee of $50 to replace the U-lock. Please try your best to not lose your lock.
Our program offers educational repairs, where we can provide tools and teach you basic repairs tailored to your bike’s repair needs, though we cannot repair your bike directly.
Yes! The City of Mississauga has detailed Bike Maps for the entire city online (pdf), and we have printed maps in the office available for pickup when the office is open!
Yes! We offer bike locks for those renting bikes in order to reduce theft. We rent out helmets to those who require safety gear as well.
BikeShare holds bike-related events such as safety checks, repair workshops and group rides throughout the year.
