The Boca Raton campus House of Representatives wants to provide bike rentals for students, but the planning has yet to be completed.

Student Government members met Friday in the Student Union House Chambers to discuss a resolution that would create an on-campus bike rental program. But house speaker Marianne Alex said that it would take some time before it’s available to students.

“Students have made that request before and we’re also going to do a survey to make sure that they do want it,” she said.

Alex said that there will be security measures in place to protect the bikes from getting stolen or lost.

She added that the university would work with the city of Boca Raton to install bike locks.

“They’ll stay locked until you pay via credit card or by phone,” Alex said, adding that “we haven’t gotten that far yet.”

Student Government members also discussed a bill that would change House Committee meetings from Friday at 12:30 p.m. to a different time chosen by house speaker Alex. Committee meetings look at potential conflicts within bills on a weekly basis.
