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

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!
