Bike Share

Welcome to the CCC bike share page! Here you can learn how to check out a bike, review bike safety tips and report needed maintenance.

  • Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska provided funding support for this project.

    3C BrandAs one of the first bike share programs in our communities and at a rural community college, CCC is leading the way for an environmentally sustainable and healthy society. Building safe, healthy and alternative options for transportation benefits our health, wellness and our environment – which benefits us all.

    This is an important pilot program for the region and our communities. With success of the CCC-Columbus and CCC-Grand Island bike share program*, we look forward to expanding the bike share and increasing the number of bikes and stations with potential community and business partners. 

    Walkable and bicycle-friendly regions creates healthier, more equitable and safe communities for our students and for us all.

    So enjoy, and ride often!  

    *Please note that this bike share pilot program is currently at the CCC-Columbus and CCC-Grand Island locations only.

  • The bike share consist of 10 bikes, owned by the college, that any CCC  student or employee can checkout to borrow at CCC-Columbus or CCC-Grand Island, for free. The bikes will be available for checkout any day and year-round (minus in the winter).

    • Return the bike as soon as you are finished, so others can use it – this courtesy is what makes this bike share work.
    • Report any needed repairs or maintenance issues(see contact information below, under "Reporting Bike Issues")
    • Treat the bikes well; keep the bikes clean and in good condition.
    • Obey all traffic and bicycle laws.
    • Know what it means to bike safely, and wear your helmet!

    The app will provide different PINs every time you check in and check out a bike; you can use the app for both Grand Island and Columbus campus. For non-smartphones users on the Grand Island campus, you will receive a personal PIN from the CCC Service Desk in the 100 wing. Keep your PIN private and in a safe place.

    The Grand Island bike fixit station is located on the trail between Stuhr Museum and Highway 281, halfway between Hall County park and CCC Grand Island.  The fixit station includes all the tools necessary to perform basic bike repairs and maintenance, from changing a flat to adjusting brakes and derailleurs. The tools are securely attached to the stand with stainless steel cables and tamper-proof fasteners. Hanging the bike from the hanger arms allows the pedals and wheels to spin freely while making adjustments.  There is also an air pump station with an air pressure gauge should your tires be running a little low on air.
