Bike sharing

The TRU Sustainability office bike share has been restructured and is now solely intended to help those looking to purchase an electric bicycle. Our bikes may be taken out during regular office business hours for one hour.

For more information about the program, or for help and suggestions on getting started with an ebike purchase please see the employee e-bike discount section, or direction your questions to our office email sustain@tru.ca, or contact Aaron at awiebe@tru.ca.

Employee e-bike discounts

The TRU Employee E-Bike Purchase program allows employees to apply for an incentive of 10 percent off the purchase value of an e-bike, up to $300 total. To assist in the purchase of higher-value bikes, employees that have permanent, full-time status may apply for financing with up to a two-year repayment period (minimum of $500 purchase price and maximum of $5,000), and employees on a contract term with TRU may apply for financing up to the end of their contract term.

More details on the finance agreement can be found within the form itself. If you want to talk about which ebike might be best for you, or want help with the details of the paperwork, please contact sustain@tru.ca.

Seasonal commuter parking pass

As a thank-you to employees for using alternative transportation, TRU is offering a seasonal commuter parking permit to cyclists. Register your bike with the Sustainability Office to be eligible for a Seasonal Commuter permit valid from Nov. 15 to Mar. 15 for either economy ($200) or general ($250) lots. To register, simply email the Sustainability Office with a picture of your bicycle and a description of where it will be parked on campus (your typical parking spot).

Cycle until mid-November, park your vehicle during winter weather, resume cycling in March, and save the equivalent of one semester of parking! Up to 100 permits are available (first-come, first-served). Register with the Sustainability Office by Nov. 10, 2021, then purchase your seasonal commuter permit on the Hangtag portal after creating a profile. The Parking Office will approve the permit request and you are able to park effective Nov. 15.
