Bicycling is a great way to travel - it's healthy, fun, and environmentally friendly! However, because NC State is an urban campus and most of the routes are on-road, cyclists need to prepare and plan for the optimum, safe cycling experience.

Make sure your bicycle is safe and adjusted correctly for the maximum amount of control, and know your skill and comfort level operating a bicycle on different facilities (off-road, on-road, multi-use paths).




Bike Racks on Buses - Pilot Program!

If you've ever wished to ride Wolfline with your bike, now you can! Wolfline's pilot bike rack program begins Tuesday, August 20th. On select routes we're testing out the bus bike racks, which will accommodate two bikes at a time. We're testing the program on:

  • Rt. 4 Westgrove
  • Rt. 6 Carter Finley
  • Rt. 11 Village Link

This is about your transit experience, so please share your feedback with us!  We want to hear from you.  Happy biking (and bus riding!).

Bike Loading Tips



Register your bicycle to prevent theft

We strongly encourage you to register your bicycle. Registering your bicycle gives you the following advantages:

  • We can easily contact you if your bike is stolen and recovered.
  • Deters potential thieves.
  • Your bike permit decal is good for the lifetime of the bicycle.
  • Helps us to better plan NCSU bicycle facilities.

Register your bike free online.
