I purchased a pass. How do I check out a bike?

If you have an active membership, there are a few different ways you can check out bikes from the system:

  • Credit card: You can use the credit card you used at signup as a way to verify your account at the kiosk. Select "I Have a Pass", then select "Or Credit Card" in the lower left corner, then swipe your credit card to verify your account.
  • Text a code: You can use the cell phone number you entered at signup to verify your account at the kiosk. Select "I Have a Pass" and then enter the number. You should receive a text with a unique code. Enter the code at the kiosk to access the bikes.
  • B-Cycle App: If you purchased a membership online, you can use the username/password to log into the BCycle app. Once logged in, tap on the station icon, select "Get a bike", and enter the dock number to unlock the bike. Note that you must be at the station since the app is GPS-fenced.
  • B-fob: If you are a B-cycle monthly or annual member, you may request an RFID fob (a little card that attaches to a keychain) at no additional charge. The B-fob allows you to skip the kiosk altogether. Go directly to a docked bike, tap the silver button on the dock to the right of the bike, then wave the B-fob directly above the lighted panel. The fob uses RFID proximity technology to verify your account. To request it simply contact our Customer Service and you can expect it in the mail in 5-8 weekdays.
