OIST Bike Share

The OIST Bike Share aims to provide its members with the usage of bicycles.

  • How to become a member:

Anyone within the OIST community (with an oist.jp account) and over 18 years old may become a member.

  • Borrowing a bicycle:

Members may request to borrow one bicycle for up to seven days using the Outlook calendars (listed in the table below). During their reservation period, keys and a battery can be collected from the Recreation Services office in OIST village center (email: recreation-services@oist.jp)

Recreation Services opening hours:

Monday

9AM - 12PM

1PM - 5PM

Tuesday

9AM - 12PM

1PM - 5PM

Wednesday

9AM - 12PM

1PM - 5PM

Thursday

CLOSED

1PM - 5PM

Friday 9AM - 12PM 1PM - 5PM
Saturday CLOSED CLOSED
Sunday CLOSED CLOSED

 

The bicycle can then be collected from the parking structure near the OIST auditorium. On the penultimate day of the reservation, the borrower may request to extend their reservation by up to five days (if no one reserved the bike in the calendar until that day). No booking can end more than 14 days after the time of reservation. All reservations must start and end on a working day, so recreation services are able to handle the keys. The bike-share officers may cancel the reservation if it does not meet the bike-share by-laws. New members must meet with an officer to learn the bike-share by-laws before using the bicycles.​
