The WolfWheels bike-rental program offers a unique, innovative approach to sustainable transportation at NC State University. All students, faculty, and staff with a valid Wolfpack One Card are able to rent bicycles on a daily, weekend, weekly or semester long basis.
WolfWheels was developed by a team of students and staff in a collaborative effort to become a more health conscious and sustainable campus. The concept has become increasingly popular for campuses and communities across the United States. At NC State University, the WolfWheels program provides this healthy environmentally conscious transportation option through a rental system provided by University Recreation.
The program not only allows renters the ability to obtain bicycles, University Recreation also offers maintenance clinics and workshops for all students, faculty and staff. Users are encouraged to participate at various levels throughout the program.
Students have a leadership role in this program, helping to maintain, rent and organize the bicycles.
WolfWheels open maintenance times can be found here.
