The online map of UCSC has a search feature that displays all cocations of bike racks on campus.
TAPS has received grant funding to install bike lockers in three locations on campus:
These lockers will operate with a BikeLink card – a "smart" card similar to the UCSC ParkCard. You load your BikeLink card with value, and you pay for your time using the bike locker just like you would a parking meter. Parking rates are estimated to cost around 4¢ per hour. There are no recurring membership fees and unused time is always refunded. More information can be found at BikeLink.
Current UCSC code states that bicycles "...shall not be parked, stood, or locked against any lightpost, stair railing, ramp, or any portion thereof, nor shall they block in any way curb cuts, ramps, or paths of accessible travel. Bicycles shall be parked in bicycle racks provided; those parked elsewhere may be impounded." The bicycle owner will be responsible for all costs associated with this action, including the citation, an impound fee, and the cost of removing the bicycle from where it is locked.
How To Lock Your Bike
There are over 3300 bike rack spaces on campus, and we are adding more each year! Most thefts can be prevented by properly securing the bicycle with an adequate lock to an approved, fixed object. Always lock your bike and lock it to a bike rack. U locks are recommended in combination with a cable or chain to allow you to secure the wheels. You can discourage the average bicycle thief by following a few guidelines found here: Tips to lock your bike on campus.
