Nova Bike Share

The Nova Bike Share is designed for students (undergraduate and graduate) with regular biking needs. Biking makes getting around campus and town easy. Students interested in renting a bike can rent for the fall semester, the spring semester, or the whole academic year. The program is free and comes with bike, lock, winter storage, and regular bike maintenance. Proof of a helmet is required to participate in the program. 

Unexpected damage to the bike will be charged to the renter, maximum penalty per bike rental is $100.

Helmets must be worn at all times while riding!

Devereux is  “one of the oldest and largest providers for behavioral health care” in the United States. Devereux’s behavioral healthcare facility located in Devon repairs and sells used bikes. The non-profit arranges several work opportunities for the individuals involved with the program, one of which includes the bike repair shop. In 2014, Villanova's Sustainability Committee introduced a bike share partnership with Devereux.  During the semester Devereux sends individuals from the bike repair program to Villanova’s campus to do maintenance work on any bikes that need a tune-up. Through this partnership, Villanova students are able to rent bikes during the school year and commute in a healthy and sustainable way.
