Bike and Ebike Requirements for 2023-24

Beginning in the upcoming school year, all students will be required to apply for a permit if they plan to ride a Bike or Ebike to school and park it on campus.

Students riding a Bike or Ebike must complete an application and attend a Carlsbad Unified School District (CUSD) approved Bike & Ebike Safety Presentation. After completion of this application process, students will then receive a district-issued parking permit sticker (sticker) to be affixed to their Bike or Ebike. Stickers will be issued through each school office. Students who do not have a sticker visibly affixed to their Bike or Ebike will not be permitted to bring their Bike or Ebike onto any CUSD campus.

Bike and Ebike Parking Permits will be renewed annually, meaning students must complete an online application and attend a CUSD-approved Bike & Ebike Safety Presentation prior to the start of each school year. There will be no charge to students for any portion of this application process. The online application link will be available throughout the year for students who are new to CUSD after the start of the school year, as well as for students who decide after the start of the school year that they now wish to ride their Bike or Ebike to school. CUSD approved Bike & Ebike Safety Presentations will also be made available at different times throughout the school year on select CUSD campuses.

A two-week grace period will also be given for all students at the start of each school year, and for all new CUSD students beginning on their first day of enrollment - regardless of their month of enrollment. If there are more than two weeks between their first day of enrollment and the next CUSD-approved Bike & Ebike Safety Presentation, parents/students send an email to requesting information about obtaining a Temporary Bike & Ebike Permit.

Please Note:

  • Bike & Ebike Permits are a privilege and may be revoked at any time for not following the safety expectations covered in the CUSD-approved Safety Presentation. This includes wearing a helmet while riding as well as riding safely to and from school and to and from a school-sponsored event.
  • If your student has already completed one of the thirteen Bike & Ebike Safety Presentations held on CUSD campuses over the past few months, that participation counts towards completion of the aforementioned Bike & Ebike Permit process.
