The University of Arkansas is launching a bike-sharing program called Razorbikes, which takes revamped bikes and makes them available for students to get around campus, free of charge, the Traveler reports. The program is launching with 20 bikes. They can be unlocked by combining the user's pass-code with the three-digit number found on the bike decal.

The bikes are mostly abandoned ones that required less than $50 in repairs. About 50 people—mostly staff and faculty—have signed up for the service, but organizers hope to gain both more students and more bikes.
