Bikes, Buses, and Carpools

Transportation can be a barrier for those who wish to engage in the Colorado Springs community, but there are many affordable ways to get around. 

MountainMetro.jpgMountain Metro is a great way to get around The Colorado Springs downtown area and as a CC student, your gold card works as a FREE bus pass throughout the academic year.  This option is available for students, but not staff and faculty. Google maps provides real-time GPS tracking and accurate wait times for bus stops.

The CCE has a small number of bikes that can be used free of charge for a day by students to get to and from local non-profits, schools, etc. for community engagement. Anyone wishing to use a bike should stop by the front desk of the CCE or email


CC Outdoor Education Bikes

Outdoor Education has a fleet of e-bikes and "fat" bikes (mountain bikes) for low-cost rentals, available during Gear House hours.  These fleets cater to group rentals, but can be rented by individuals if available.  If you own your own bicycle, the Bike & Ski Co-op is available to support your equipment maintenance needs.  The Co-op also has U-locks, bike tubes, and tires for sale.
