Bike Share

Welcome to the CCC bike share page! Here you can learn how to check out a bike, review bike safety tips and report needed maintenance.

  • Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska provided funding support for this project.

    3C BrandAs one of the first bike share programs in our communities and at a rural community college, CCC is leading the way for an environmentally sustainable and healthy society. Building safe, healthy and alternative options for transportation benefits our health, wellness and our environment – which benefits us all.

    This is an important pilot program for the region and our communities. With success of the CCC-Columbus and CCC-Grand Island bike share program*, we look forward to expanding the bike share and increasing the number of bikes and stations with potential community and business partners. 

    Walkable and bicycle-friendly regions creates healthier, more equitable and safe communities for our students and for us all.

    So enjoy, and ride often!  

    *Please note that this bike share pilot program is currently at the CCC-Columbus and CCC-Grand Island locations only.

  • The bike share consist of 10 bikes, owned by the college, that any CCC  student or employee can checkout to borrow at CCC-Columbus or CCC-Grand Island, for free. The bikes will be available for checkout any day and year-round (minus in the winter).

    • Return the bike as soon as you are finished, so others can use it – this courtesy is what makes this bike share work.
    • Report any needed repairs or maintenance issues(see contact information below, under "Reporting Bike Issues")
    • Treat the bikes well; keep the bikes clean and in good condition.
    • Obey all traffic and bicycle laws.
    • Know what it means to bike safely, and wear your helmet!

    You will receive a personal PIN. Keep your PIN private and in a safe place. Contact facilities (contact information below) if you lose or forget your PIN. Please note PINS will be reset every semester and different PINS are needed if you plan to use the bike share on both the Columbus and Grand Island campuses.
