The University of Virginia will unveil a fleet of 120 bicycles later this summer as part of a new bike-sharing program. The bikes will serve about 1,100 acres of UVa’s Grounds, giving riders a transport alternative.

Local residents can become members of the bike-share program for $80, and UVa is providing membership discounts for students, faculty and staff at $60.

Members will be able to find bikes at hub locations scattered throughout UVa’s campus or by looking online. They can reserve bicycles online, from SoBi’s mobile app, or directly from the keypads on the bikes.

At the end of their ride, members can park the bikes at any bicycle rack in the system area and share statistics about their ride with other riders.
