About

The program is a joint initiative from the Student Government Association (SGA), UAH Housing, and UAH Facilities and has its own Charger Cycle staff devoted to bicycle maintenance and program operations. This program’s efforts focus on sustainability by creating a safer, healthier, and more environmentally friendly campus. The Charger Cycle program is also aimed at alleviating some of UAH’s transit and parking problems.
