On Saturday, 4/1, we'll be implementing a few changes to our Casual Cruiser (Pay-Per-Trip) pass in order to better meet the needs of our riders. The sign-up cost of this pass will remain $0, and all other passes will remain the same. Here's what's up:First, we're lowering the cost of trips!
After 4/1, the first half hour of every trip will drop from $3 to $2--that's lower than the cost of a bus trip. In accordance with our other passes, fees for trips over 30 minutes will remain at $3 per half hour.
Second, in conjunction with the launch of our app
, we'll stop issuing new and replacement membership cards
for the Casual Cruiser pass.
Eliminating the cost of mailing membership cards is what will allow us to charge a lower rate for trips on this pass.
But if you're a current Casual Cruiser pass holder, don't worry: Your current membership card will still allow you to check out bikes as long as you have it
, and you can also check out bikes using the app
, your credit card, or text message.
Finally, we'll be changing this pass's billing schedule.
Currently, Casual Cruiser trips are billed in a single sum on the first of every month. After 4/1
, new Casual Cruisers will be billed for trips on a 7-day cycle. This change will make it easier for riders to upgrade to a different pass type should they so choose.
Casual Cruisers registered before 4/1 will remain on a monthly billing cycle until the end of their current pass period.
