  • Standard bikes: $0.50 per 30 minutes for users with a @ucsd.edu (or subdomain) email address

New student riders: Use code TRITON5 to get $5 off when you create an account with an “ucsd.edu” email address.

SHAWN STRANDE ON SPIN

“I take the 150 express bus to campus and get off at Eucalyptus Grove Lane. I've been trying the Spin bikesharing service and, so far, I really like it. Now, instead of walking, I grab a Spin bike (when there’s one nearby), and zip across campus in about 5 minutes. It has reduced my commute by about 10 minutes each way. Shaving 20 minutes off a daily commute is fairly significant for me.”
