Bike Sharing

Consider bike sharing as a great alternative to commuting, running errands and to get out and enjoy some healthy activity, all the while reducing your carbon footprint.  

A bike sharing program offered by Dropbike will soon be available to the Queen's community. Bike sharing provides flexible access to a bicycle at any time. Users get convenient access to bikes that will be spread throughout campus and the downtown core of Kingston. Membership can be accessed via a smart phone application and riding costs as little as $1/hour.
