Mobile Bike Shop Pilot Increases Service Options on Campus
Parking & Transportation Services (P&TS) launched a pilot mobile bike service to provide an additional option for bike tune-ups and repairs on campus. By bringing Beeline Bikes to campus, Stanford hopes to make it more convenient for faculty, staff, and students who do not live or work near the Campus Bike Shop to tune up and maintain their bikes to keep them safe, at special rates.
Customers book reservations online in advance for maintenance appointments on days the group will be on campus and receive detailed estimates from a mechanic when dropping off their bikes. When the work is completed, Beeline sends the customer a text message to arrange pickup and payment. P&TS will explore expansion of this opportunity during the 2015-16 school year.
