HOW BCYCLE WORKS

1. Join

Day-long, monthly or year-long memberships are available for purchase online.  Walk-up pricing available at any B-station Kiosk.

NEW MEMBERS:

If you purchase a membership at the kiosk, you may select a bike by it's dock number. The dock will beep indicating the bike has been unlocked and is ready to remove.

EXISTING MEMBERS:

If you buy a month or year-long membership, you will be sent a B-card.  Use this card to quickly unlock bikes from the dock without using the kiosk.  Push the silver button on the bike's dock, then touch your card to the square behind the button.  The dock will beep, indicating the bike is unlocked.

If you already have a membership but do not have your B-card, use the kiosk to sign in. Use the same credit card that you used to purchase the membership to access your account.

2. Ride

Use your BCycle for up to 60 minutes at a time.  Trips that last longer than 60 minutes cost extra.  This discourages cyclists from taking bikes out of the system for a long time, helping to ensure there are bikes available for everyone to use.

Your trip ends and the timer resets whenever you dock a bike.

3. Return the bike

Return your BCycle to any B-station by rolling it into an available dock. Wait for three rapid blinks of the green light and three quick beeps. That’s your signal that the bike has been securely returned.

4. Repeat

Swipe your card again at the kiosk, and select a bike by it's dock number. The dock will beep indicating the bike has been unlocked and is ready to remove.  Your rides are free for the remainder of your membership as long as your trip are kept within 60 minutes.
