  • Price drop and other Casual Cruiser changes coming 4/1

    by Kevin Bell | Mar 21,2017
    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.

    Happy riding!

  • Rider alert: Broadway & Baseline construction closure starting 3/19

    by Kevin Bell | Mar 17,2017
    Hey riders—Just a quick heads-up that starting Sunday, March 19th, the Broadway & Baseline station will be made temporarily unavailable to allow the City of Boulder to complete the next phase of construction on the Baseline underpass. During this period, the station will be inaccessible to pedestrians.

    The timeline we've received from the city indicates that the station will be affected for approximately three weeks.

    As you may recall, this station was initially relocated further west to accommodate the first phase of construction, though unfortunately, additional relocations during this next phase of construction have proven to be logistically impossible.

    During this period of construction, we will be removing the station from our digital maps.

    The next closest stations available for use are:
    • To the south: 27th Way & Broadway
    • To the east: Williams Village
    • To the north: Broadway & Euclid
    Broadway & Baseline will re-open as soon as we receive clearance from the city. Apologies for any inconvenience in the interim.
  • Mobile App checkout is here! Download the new app today

    by Kevin Bell | Mar 07,2017
    We're excited to announce that as of today, you can check out bikes using your mobile device and the brand-new BCycle app:

    Checkout bikes, manage your account, or get directions

    Note: this is a different app from the B-cycle Now app that most of you are using. While it remains a great tool for visualizing bike availability, B-cycle Now will not allow mobile bike checkout.

    B cycle now vs Bcycle app

    You can download it now for iOS or Android.

    Here's how mobile checkout works:

    • Once you've downloaded the BCycle app, log into your account via the icon in the top right corner
    • Make sure you give the app access to your phone's GPS
      • Mobile checkout won't work without GPS!
    • Stand next to the station you want to access and tap that station's icon on your app
    • Tap the Get a bike button that pops up below the station icon
    • Enter the dock number and tap Checkout
    For complete information on all the new features of the BCycle app, click here.

    Don't have a smartphone, or just don't want another app? Our stations now also allow checkout via text message. Here's how that works:

    • Make sure you have a current mobile phone number attached to your Boulder B-cycle membership
    • Walk up to any station and follow the prompts onscreen to checkout a bike
    • Choose "Keep Riding" and enter your mobile phone number
    • Our database will text you a 6-digit code
    • Enter that code at the station and choose your bike!

    Like always, you can still check out bikes using your B-card and the credit card you have on file with your membership. 

    App-y Riding!
