StarBikes Program

What is the StarBikes Program?

A program provided to UIS Students assessed the General Fee and Faculty and Staff who have a valid Rec Membership to promote health and wellness on campus.  This program allows you to check out a bike with Campus Recreation for a maximum of SEVEN days.  For the SEVEN days you can ride the bike anywhere you need to go on campus or around town.

How does it work?

You check out a bike, a key, and a lock with Campus Recreation.  You will be able to ride the bike around campus for the duration you have the bike checked out.  When the day arrives that you are to return the bike you must return it to The Recreation and Athletic Center.  You will return the bike, the lock, and the key.  When returning the bike to TRAC, you may be allowed to re-check out the bike if no other individuals are on the waiting list.

You must go to TRAC in order to pick up a bike or be put on the waiting list.  Phone reservations are not accepted. 

How much does it cost?

It is free to all UIS Students assessed the General Fee and Faculty and Staff who have a valid Rec Membership.  A Valid icard must be presented when checking out a bike.

Late Fees

If a bike checked out in your name is not returned by closing time of TRAC on the designated due date, you will be charged $5 per day for each day the bike, lock, and/or key is late.  Bikes (locks/keys) returned 1-5 days late on a first occurrence, you must pay the $5/day for every day that its late.  If a bike (lock/key) is returned late by 1-5 days on a second occurrence, you must pay $5/day, and now you no longer have TRAC Stars bike privileges for the rest of the academic year.  After 5 days of being late, Campus Recreation will report the bike to the UIS Police Department as a stolen item.
