Binghamton University Bike Share Application

This project is the user interface and database for a larger in progress effort to create an automated bike rack that allows students and faculty at Binghamton University to use the bike sharing program without the need for human interaction. Currently the program operates using a pen and paper system and relies on a person sitting behind a desk to hand out keys. This project is meant to replace the pen and paper system allowing for easier and more efficient sign in/out of bikes, as well as statistics tracking. This project must operate alone and eventually as the user interface for the automated racks.


Binghamton University's Bike Share program is looking to create a system similar to Citi-Bike. This project was created to write the software part of this system.


The system is designed to work using the Binghamton University ID cards. A student or faculty member can walk up to the system and swipe their ID to sign-out a bike from the system.


The software is completely open-source and available for others to use.
