Ubike or Youbike is an efficient bike rental program offered by the Taipei City Department of Transportation and Giant Bikes. Generally, you will be able to find a Youbike station at every MRT station and next to every department on campus. To rent a Youbike you will need a registered (online or at the kiosk) EasyCard (your student card works as one) and a local mobile number.
There are two Ubike systems: 1.0 and 2.0. Both can be found on the NTU campus. The Ubike 2.0 system additionally allows you to rent by using a smartphone. To find the closest Ubike station you can search Ubike 1.0 or 2.0 in Google maps. Or use the Ubike Apps that can be downloaded on Android and iOS (only in Chinese).

At NTU, almost everyone has a bike to quickly travel between classrooms within our large campus, and is one of the most convenient ways to commute among students.
Where and how to get a bike?
There are used bike auctions from time to time at the Shui Yuan bicycle towing area for NTU students, staff, and faculty members. The price will not be more than NTD 1,200 for each and the price depends on the condition. For more information please refer to the “used bike auction section” of the Bicycle Parking Management System.
Bicycle Parking Permit
Every bicycle parked on the campus needs a parking permit. A bicycle without a parking permit can be towed away. After 2 months, the unclaimed bicycles will be disposed.
For applying for the bicycle parking permit, please refer to the “Bicycle Parking Management System”.
Bicycle towing and claiming
Your bike will be towed away if you do not park it properly. If your bike was towed go to the “Bicycle Parking Management System” to search for your bike, and go to the Shui Yuan bicycle towing area to claim your bike.
