POPLARVILLE, Miss. — Students at a Mississippi college can rent bicycles to get around campus.
The Picayune Item reports that a rental program starts this semester at Pearl River Community College in Poplarville.
The bikes are available for an hour or two, or for several weeks at a time.
The college received a grant of just over $198,000 from the BlueCross BlueShield of Mississippi Foundation. It used the money to buy 72 maroon and gold custom-painted bikes.
They can be used free for an hour or rented for $15 for half a semester or $25 for the whole semester.
