» Bike Voucher Program

The Bike Voucher Program is offered to current Chapman students, faculty, and staff who meet the eligibility requirements. Those who qualify will receive a voucher worth $350 that may be used at one of the local bike shops listed below to cover the cost of a bike, a U-lock, and a helmet, or to upgrade your bike for commuting purposes. In exchange, you will relinquish your right to purchase a Chapman parking permit for the next 2 years. This program is a great way to cut down on the costliness of motor vehicle transportation, improve health, and lessen your contribution to air pollution.

In the tabs below, you can find the participating bicycle retailers and a helpful new application for cyclists, along with information on how to apply for the program.

  • The newly created Ride the City application is your one-stop shop for everything you may need for your bike commute. Ride the City provides many resources for cyclists across the country. Here is just some of the helpful information they give:
    • Bicycle lanes in your area
    • Suggested routes that are bicycle-friendly
    • Bicycle shops nearby
    • Places to rent bicycles
    • Option to share these things with your friends
    They are always looking for suggestions on improvement and any shops or lanes they may not have on their map. The mobile application is now available for download in Apple's App Store and the Android Google Play store.
