Biking at Emory

Emory supports a bicycling culture for those who cycle to work, and those who bicycle around campus. Consider cycling to work or class as a healthier alternative to driving.

Emory's bicycle commuter program provides incentives to employees and graduate students who choose to cycle instead of driving to campus. Once cyclists register, they receive a back-up commute option, which will allow them to park on/transport to campus in the event of inclement weather.
