The Runner Ride bike share is an exemplary model of campus collaboration. Thank you to the Student Recreation Center, Associated Students, Inc., Business and Administrative Services, and the Office of the President. The program allows students, staff, and faculty free daily access to a fleet of 30 bicycles, reducing the University's carbon footprint and facilitating a healthy lifestyle. You do not need an SRC membership to use the bicycles, just check one out at the SRC front desk.

Three of the CSUB EV stations currently have a broken retention clip. This broken clip affects the ability of the chargers to stay connected to some EV models. We are in regular communication with our vendor and should have these repaired before February 2023. We apologize for any inconvenience.
There are currently 4 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at CSUB. These charging stations are located in Lot M directly next to the Runner Cafe and the Student Union. A valid parking permit is required when using a charging station.
The current fee for using an EV charging station is $1.25 for each of the first 4 hours and $2.50 for each hour thereafter. These stations are part of the ChargePoint network, so remember to set up an account before charging.
