  • At any of our stations, press the silver button to the right of any docked B-cycle. Tap your fob on the lighted panel near the button to unlock the B-cycle.
  • One ride is considered any period of up to 30 minutes. For example, two separate 10-minute trips = 2 rides. One 40-minute trip = 2 rides.
  • Return the B-cycle to any station by pushing it into an open dock. A green light will blink and the dock will beep confirming the B-cycle has been returned.
