Bicycling and Gator Gears

As part of the University’s commitment to sustainability, we recommend that all members of campus consider bicycling and walking as methods of transportation for commuting, meetings and other University-related functions. Both offer excellent health benefits, as well as reducing fuel consumption and campus vehicle traffic.

UF Transportation and Parking Services maintains and installs bike racks all across campus to help facilitate bicycle commuting and use for the UF community. To find a bike rack near your building or destination, click here to visit the UF Campus Map. After opening the map, choose Transportation from the Layers menu and then check the box next to Bike Racks to view all campus bike rack locations.

TAPS also offers daily and weekly parking decal options to allow our customers flexibility for days when bringing a vehicle to campus is absolutely necessary. For additional details on this benefit, please visit our decals page for more information or call the TAPS customer service office at (352) 392-PARK (7275).
