Meredith College Borrow-a-Bike (BAB) Program for Students, Faculty, and Staff

Two bikes have been purchased for use by faculty, staff, and students and are offered for a maximum of four (4) hours per use and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The Borrow-a-Bike (BAB) program is coordinated by Health Services and the Carlyle Campbell Library.

The goal of the BAB program is to:

  • Offer an alternative mode of transportation that is more affordable and promotes healthy lifestyle choices
  • Educate students, faculty, and staff about the impact their personal choices have on the environment
  • Provide students, faculty, and staff an alternate way to explore Raleigh and the Capital Area Greenway
  • Support Meredith’s strategic plan for wellness

Two bicycles and helmets are available for checkout to students, faculty, and staff for up to four hours. Additional accessories, such as baskets, locks, and pumps may be checked out as well. To check out a bicycle, simply bring your CamCard to the library and sign a borrowing agreement/waiver.
