While studying and living in Rennes, our students will undertake a wide variety of activities each week, most of which involves travel: going back and forth to campus, practicing sports, shopping, going out in the evening and more. In order to facilitate this process and help our students save money and improve the environmental impact of their journeys, we’re organizing plenty of great initiatives on Thursday September 22nd, including: a bike exchange, Bicycode engraving, bike repair workshop...

Participation is via the Mobilacteurs application available on the IOS and Android store.
It is possible to participate alone, but this activity is more fun with several people, so call your friends and create a team! Everyday trips made by walking, cycling, public transport, carpooling and carsharing, during the day, evening or weekend earns points, allows one to pass levels, and challenge colleagues, friends and other companies involved in the challenge.
Those who enter will be eligible to win gifts.
And to encourage our staff to to participate in the Mobility Day, we’re organizing:
The Staff Bike-Bus
On this day, staff are encouraged to come to work by bike and spend a friendly moment with colleagues. The regulars will be able to advise the beginners on the route to take and the attitude to follow, with a special treat of breakfast offered upon arrival.
