Purchase a membership online or at any B-station.

  1. Our system offers 3 types of memberships:  24-Hour Pass, 30-day and annual.
  2. All membership levels can be purchased online (credit card required).
  3. Only 24-hour memberships can be purchased at B-stations (credit card required).

Choose a bike from any B-station

If you do not have a B-card and have not yet purchased a membership:

  1. Press the ‘Start’ button.
  2. Follow the instructions on the touchscreen to purchase a 24-hour membership.
  3. When prompted, select the dock number of the bike you wish to check out.
  4. The kiosk will unlock the bike from the dock you chose. The dock holding the bike will beep until the bike is removed.

If you do not have a B-card, but already have purchased a membership:

  1. Press the ‘Start’ button at the kiosk.
  2. Select ‘No’ when asked if you would like to purchase a membership.
  3. Follow the prompts on the touchscreen. When prompted, swipe the same credit card you bought your membership with.
  4. When prompted, select the dock number of the bike you wish to check out.
  5. The kiosk will unlock the bike from the dock you chose. The dock holding the bike will beep until the bike is removed.

If you have a B-card:

  1. Choose one of the locked bikes.
  2. Press the silver button on the bike’s dock.
  3. Touch your B-card to the square behind the silver button.
  4. Remove the bike once the locks open (dock will start beeping after the bike is unlocked).

Grab your bike and go

  1. Adjust your seat, put on your helmet, and go.
  2. Rides of less than 30 minutes incur no usage fee.
  3. Usage fees apply for rides longer than 30 minutes (see Rates page).

Return your bike to any B-station

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