Please note the following changes during our “essential services” programming due to the COVID19 pandemic:
Can I still donate bikes and parts?
Short answer: Yes! You can drop off donations during essential services hours, Tues-Sat, 10-2pm.
Long answer: Due to increasingly limited capacity as a result of the pandemic we can only accept good condition bicycles and parts at this time. If you have unwanted bikes that are broken/rusty we suggest you take them directly to a metal scrap yard. Thank you for understanding.
We are a 501(c)3 tax-exempt public charity. Your item donations are tax deductible. When you drop off your donation to BICAS, during Open Shop Hours, our employees can furnish you with a tax receipt.
What Bikes Do You Take? We try very hard to accept as many bikes as possible however sometimes we get very full with your generous donations and have to be discerning. In these instances we will gladly direct you to a nearby recycling center that can take your donations as scrap and will donate the proceeds to us! Thank you in advance for your patience in these circumstances!
Why donate? BICAS has provided affordable transportation for over 25 years. Your donation keeps the doors open and Tucson rolling!
Where can I bring my donation? We’re located at 2001 N. 7th Ave. MAP.
Can you pick up my donation? We’re unable to pick up donations at this time.
How will my donation be used? Some bikes will be used as a teaching aid in our Build-A-Bike and build-a-KIDS-bike classes and refurbished to be sold in our community bike shop. Otherwise, they are made available to customers for purchase or work-trade or Earn-A-Bike. Bike sales are a major source of revenue for BICAS and allow us to keep our lights on and doors open 6 days a week. Sales allow us to continue all of the programming and community tools we love to share with our community!
Sometimes we make mini mutant bikes for our Events!
Thank you for your donations and support that keep Tucson rolling!
