A Library for Bikes

The University of California, Los Angeles has begun operations on a new kind of library -- one that rents bikes out to students.

Bikes are priced at $35 per quarter, and allow students to have access to bicycle transportation at a lower cost than owning

"A similarly-equipped Felt bike would cost $550 to buy - and wouldn't come with the complimentary bike lock, combination lock, and helmet UCLA's providing to borrowers.

Jealous about the sweet deal Bruins are getting on bikes? Well, the UCLA students ARE paying for the UCLA Bicycle Library. The money for the program comes from The Green Initiative Fund, created two years ago by a student vote that raised student fees by $4 a quarter in order to fund student-initiated sustainability projects."
