Zimride is the new way to get where you need to go without it costing an arm & a leg in fuel costs. Split costs by sharing the empty seats in your car or catch a ride with a classmate or colleague.  To join or view Chico State’s private ZimRide network.

Downtown Bicycle Rentals

Chico is a very bicycle friendly town! Chico is a convenient community for bicycling, as it is relatively flat and there are ample bike parking locations as well as bike lanes and paths throughout the community. Virtually everything in town is within biking distance (within 5 miles, but mostly within 2 miles). Although bicycle riding through the core of the University campus is prohibited, there are convenient bicycle parking locations around the entire campus. If you didn’t bring your bike with you, you can always rent one!
