If you have a quick errand to run across campus or just want to get a little exercise, consider taking advantage of the new Pace Bike Share at Indiana University Bloomington.

IU launched the new smart bike-sharing service this summer, in partnership with the City of Bloomington, offering a fast and affordable way to travel around the city and campus.

The bikes are pay-as-you-go and cost $1 per 30 minutes. Monthly memberships are also available.

Downloading the Pace app allows users to quickly find Pace bike racks and available bikes nearby.

For more information about how to use the bike-sharing service, watch the video above.
