Bike Share

Bike Share News: The Bike Share program is switching to the OnBike App.

The Fermilab Bike Share is easy to join and free to use. It is available  to all Employees and Users/Affiliates holding a current Fermilab Badge.

Fermilab’s Bike Share bicycles are useful for going from building to building on Fermilab property. They are also a nice way to enjoy some of the surrounding beauty of the Fermilab site and get some light exercise as well.

How to Join…

Joining the Bike Share Program is a 2 step process

  1. Complete the Recreation Waiver in FermiWorks
  2. Register via the On BIke App
    • Download the On Bike App from the App store or Google Play on your smartphone and register for the Fermilab network.
    • Type in “Fermilab 2023” in as the share system you want to join
    • Read and sign the Bike Share Rider agreement and waiver in the app.


Once you have completed these steps, the request will be forwarded for confirmation of an active badge and administrative approval. After approval, the requester will be able to check out Bike Share bicycles. Administrative approval will only be given during regular business hours (8:00 AM-4:30 PM)
