LEAP E-scooters and Bikes

LEAP Mobility 

Leap's bikeshare rental and e-scooter program provides affordable, short-term bike and e-scooter rentals on campus. 

Simply download the LEAP Mobility app, set up your new account and pay the one-time $3 safety deposit. Find an available scooter or bike near you using the app's GPS map, then scan the vehicle's QR code to begin your ride. 

Electric Scooter Rental

E-scooters are available for short-term rental at hub locations through the Leap app. While helmets are not provided with the e-scooter rental, we strongly encourage you to wear a helmet while riding.

Cost to rent:

  • $1.50 for the first minute
  • $0.20 for each additional minute

E-scooter operators must abide by the Campus Transportation Policies for the University of North Carolina at Charlotte

It is especially important for e-scooter operators to be aware of the following:

  • E-scooters must be parked in a designated e-scooter hub. 
  • Failure to return an e-scooter to a designated hub at the end of a reservation will result in a $15 to $120 retrieval fine.
  • Riders must walk e-scooters through restricted areas. Scooters are programmed to reduce speeds to no more than six miles per hour in restricted areas.
  • E-scooters may not be operated off-campus, during adverse weather or at night (8 p.m. to 7 a.m.).

eBike Rental

Pedal-assist bikes are available for rental through the LEAP app at stations across campus. 

Cost to rent:

  • $1.50 for the first minute
  • $0.20 for each additional minute

Failure to park the eBike in a designated service area could result in a $15 to $120 retrieval fine.
