Alternative Vehicles

Bicycles: Bicycles are an excellent, environmentally-friendly substitute for vehicles, and Rice encourages this use of alternative transportation by providing bicycle racks at campus buildings. Bicycles need to be registered with RUPD. Please visit the Bikes at Rice homepage for more information.

Skateboards and Skates: Rice is always on the go, and so it comes as no surprise that our community is as well. We welcome the use of skateboards and skates, but we ask the individuals who choose this form of transport to educate themselves on Rice skating etiquette.

Two and Three-Wheeled Vehicles: Though compact in form, any vehicle with a motor requires registration and follows the same rules and regulations as an automobile.

Please refer to the Parking Rules and Regulations for more information on alternative vehicle protocol and etiquette.
