A Complete Guide to Use ArborBike


How to Use ArborBike

1. Join online or at any station.
You need to join ArborBike before ride. You can join online or at any ArborBike station.
2. Ride for up to 60 minutes with no additional fees.
To use ArborBike, you should swipe your membership card at a dock (annual members), or swipe your credit card at the kiosk (you need to join ArborBike with this credit card). After swiping your membership or credit card, pull your ArborBike from its dock. Before riding, check the tires, brakes, and seat height. Once comfortable, plan your route and ride.
3. Return to any ArborBike station.
When you reach your destination, dismount and guide the ArborBike into an empty dock. Be sure the light shows that you’ve successfully returned the bike!
4. Repeat as many times as you like.

The decal below, which will be located on each ArborBike’s handlebar assembly, outlines three important components of safe riding. Practice these tips to be safe, conscientious, and predictable!
