Frequently Asked Questions

How do I rent a bike?

Patrons may approach any station stocked with bicycles and select the bike number of their choosing. Then, a patron would either use a membership card, key or a credit card to check out a bike by entering the corresponding bicycle number (each bike has a unique identification number). Once selected, simply approach the bike dock and remove the bike when the LED light turns green, indicating the bike is unlocked. Enjoy!

How long can I use a DISCOVER® BIKE?

For as long as you want, based on your choice of membership or casual use. Different membership and rentals options will be available, and we encourage you to check back prior to the program’s launch for more details. At least two membership options will be offered: “Standard”, with unlimited 30-minute rides, and “Deluxe”, with unlimited 60-minute rides. Short term rentals will include 30-minute, 60-minute and 2-hour options.

Can I take out more than one bike with my key or my credit card?

You can only check out one bike on a single membership key. You may check out up to three (3) bikes on a credit or debit card.

Can I lend my DISCOVER® BIKE membership key to other people?

No. You are not permitted to share or lend your membership with other people. Doing so creates financial liability for you in the event that the bike is not returned on time or if there is damage to the bike. Further, it is grounds for the cancellation of your membership.

Will DISCOVER® BIKE offer any types of discounted memberships?

DISCOVER® BIKE will, on a case by case basis, offer discounted memberships to non-profit, government and student groups.

What is the difference between a membership subscription and a rental?

A membership is generally recommended for ongoing access to or for regular commuting around the city. A membership will get the rider from station to station without additional usage fees. Members may check-out a bike from any station and return it to any station in the city. Members can access all bikes and stations in the city. A rental is generally for one-time users of the program and can replace the need for a taxi or excessive walks on short trips. During the rental period the rider may check-out a bike from any station and return a bike to any station. Renters may access all bikes and stations in the city during the rental period.

Will there be additional usage fees if I do not return my DISCOVER® BIKE on-time?

Yes. Additional usage fees will apply to riders who do not return their DISCOVER® BIKE on-time.
