Parking and Transportation Services is committed to promoting sustainable transportation options for the campus community. The department works within the guidelines of the Campus Sustainability Task Force and the South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD) to mitigate air pollution and traffic congestion by offering programs and services that support human-powered, transportation such as walking, skateboarding and bicycling.
LB BikeShare Program
LB Bikeshare is a community bikesharing service designed to promote a healthy lifestyle, improve air quality, and reduce traffic and congestion within the City of Long Beach. These "blue bikes" are located at strategic locations around CSULB and at logical, student-dense areas located off-campus.
Cycling also gives individuals the chance to park directly in front of their destinations on campus, avoid traffic, parking stress, and the cost of a parking permit. LB Bikeshare also provides individuals the freedom to take short unplanned trips to/from campus without owning a bike.
CSULB students, faculty and staff can enjoy a special discounted rate by visiting the LB Bikeshare Promo page.
Additional information about LB BikeShare and FAQ can be found at longbeachbikeshare.com.

Bicycle Theft Prevention and Recovery
We recommend the use of a U-Lock device rather than a chain or cable to protect your bike. Registering your bike also provides helpful information to law enforcement in the event your bike is stolen and increases the likelihood that your bike will be recovered. To obtain a bicycle license, contact University Police at 562.985.4101. The service is free. Please bring proof of purchase, if available.
