Rocket Wheels

The University of Toledo proudly began its bike sharing program, Rocket Wheels, in 2015. This program offers UToledo students, faculty and staff an alternative option for traveling around campus. Rocket Wheels aims to foster a stronger and greener campus by providing a convenient and accessible campus bike share program. Rocket Wheels is free to all UToledo students, faculty and staff.

Please Note: Due to extremely cold temperatures and other inclement weather factors usually present during Ohio winters, bikes will be unavailable on campus from mid-November until approximately mid-March.
