Green Bike Fleet Program

JCU's award winning Green Bike Fleet program repairs second hand bikes and sells them at low cost to JCU students. The program provides affordable and convenient transport, saves energy, reduces carbon emissions, improves health, improve resource efficiency and reduce waste. To date the
project has refurbished and sold over 400 bikes.

Watch our video below to learn about our Internationally recognised, award winning Green Bike Fleet program.


Due to the popularity of the program bikes are often in short supply. At the start of each semester a fleet of bikes are sold with first preference given to new International students as the program is an International Office initiative. Students wishing to purchase a green bike should visit the JCU Bike Workshop during opening hours.

Opening hours for JCU's Townsville bicycle workshop during Semester 1, 2020 are 10am - 1pm, Monday to Friday.


The Bicycle Workshop at the Cairns campus is currently closed. We hope to have it reopened as soon as possible. Unfortunately, there will be no Green Fleet bicycles available for sale until the workshop reopens.

If you would like to donate a bike to the program please contact Students wishing to return their Green Bike are eligible for a $20 reimbursement provided the bike is in good working order. For details on how to obtain a reimbursement please contact

The JCU Green Bike Fleet project is a collaboration between James Cook International, TropEco and the Bicycle Users Group and was made possible through the JCU Action for Sustainability Fund.
