Bikes and Walking. With 300 miles of bike/walking paths in and around Boulder, it’s really easy to get from point A to point B by bike or foot.  A few things to remember:

  • Registration. It’s $10 for as long as you own the bike.  Visit the CU Bicycle Station east of the UMC to register.
  • Lights. City regulations require that you use a front white light and rear red light for riding after dark.
  • Theft. Always use a U-lock when you leave your bike unattended.
  • Crosswalks. Always use the marked crosswalks, and give the motorist a chance to see you before you cross.
  • Other Wheels. Skateboards are accepted on campus pathways, but not on campus streets or in commercial areas like Pearl Street Mall, 29th Street Mall, and the Hill.

Parking & Transportation Services (PTS). PTS helps students and their visitors with their transportation needs with an emphasis on safety and sustainability. We provide options:
