Dear NYIT Alumni,
 Bike Share
Thanks to a generous donation, NYIT has launched a bike share program on its New York campuses. 50-plus bicycles are now available for use by students, faculty, and staff members. The program's goal is to have an easily accessible, fun, healthy way for the entire NYIT community to participate in support of a greener campus.

Best regards,
