Green Bikes

The Green Bikes Shop provides bike repair services free of charge and offers new bike parts at a discounted price.

This student-run program rents over 200 used bikes free of charge to campus members, repairs bikes for free, and hosts a variety of bicycling-related workshops and events designed to increase bicycling across the campus community. The program obtains bikes through donations and through the collection of bikes abandoned on campus at the end of the school year.

Metrolink Reimbursement

Faculty and staff are reimbursed for costs associated with Metrolink or public bus transit up to $100. Students traveling for College-related purposes (e.g., a conference) can also request reimbursement. Please contact Human Resources for more information.

Electric Vehicle Charging

The college offers 8 EV charging stations operated through the ChargePoint network, located in the South Campus Parking Structure on the first floor north end. Faculty and staff can access reduced rates at these stations by contacting sustainability@pomona.edu for more information. Guest charging is available for $1.25 per hour.

Shared Campus Fleet

In 2019, Campus Services consolidated and upgraded the campus vehicle fleet to optimize transportation efficiency. Faculty and staff can now borrow a shared vehicle for any off-campus transportation needs. Email fleetmanagement@pomona.edu to reserve a vehicle.

Sagecoach Bus

The College offers a rentable 34-passenger bus for faculty, staff, and College-affiliated student groups needing transportation to trips, events, semesterly airport travel, etc. This reduces the need for students to bring cars to campus and encourages carpooling.

There are 13 Zipcar shared cars for daily or hourly rental on campus, including hybrids.

Pomona College has contracted with Zipcar car-sharing to provide rental cars for students on campus. For more information about membership eligibility, or to sign up, please go to the Zipcar website for Pomona.
