Cool Cruisers FAQs
What are the COOL Cruisers?
COOL Cruisers are a Recreation Program initiative designed to give you free and easy access to bicycle transportation on the University’s campus.
What about helmets?
Helmets will be provided for you when you check-out a bike. Even if you decide not to wear the helmet, it will still be given to you upon check-out. It is your responsibility to return the helmet in the same condition that you received it in.
Where do I pick up and drop off my sweet COOL Cruisers?
The bike rack in front of the HUB
Where do I go to sign a COOL Cruisers out?
The “Fitness Room” in the HUB
When can I check out a White COOL Cruisers?
Monday through Friday 9AM to 5PM
How do I sign up for the program?
Just come into the “Fitness Room” and tell the employee behind the desk that you wish to rent one of the sweetest bikes on campus. We will take care of things from there. Just remember to bring your valid PSU ID!
How many bikes do you have? What are they like?
We currently have 5 Day use and 6 Multi-Day cruiser-style bicycles with reinforced steel frames, thick tires, coaster brakes and a lock.
I saw a tricycle on campus. What is that about?
On top of the 11 cruisers, we do have 1 tricycle that can be rented out (same rules and regulations apply)
What happens if I lose the bike lock?
Tell our front desk worker immediately. Unfortunately, you’ll be charged $25.00.
What happens if I turn a bicycle in late?
Late check-ins will incur a fine and suspension of rental privileges.
What happens if the bicycle I’m using is damaged under my care?
You are responsible to bring the bicycle to RHINO’s for the repair. Make sure you call us before you bring the bicycle to them. Depending upon the cause (negligence or not), type, and extent of damage done to the bike, you will be held liable for repair work.
What happens if the bike is lost or stolen under my care?
It is your responsibility to ensure that your COOL Cruisers makes it back to the bike rack safely. Therefore, we will have to ask you to recoup the cost of the bicycle if it is lost or stolen under your care.
