  • 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.

  • Rider alert: New customer service tool

    by Kevin Bell | Jan 06,2017
    In response to the data we gathered in our 2016 System Improvement Survey, we're excited to announce the launch of a new customer service tool. It looks like this:

    The data in the survey was clear: some bike and station maintenance problems have been going unreported, in part because of issues of ease and comfort with our current phone and email options.

    Today, we're launching a new form that lets riders report non-urgent bike and station maintenance issues from their smartphone or desktop computer.

    Here's now it works:
    • Every time you successfully return a bike, you'll now receive an email confirming that successful return, along with a text message, if you've signed up for SMS alerts
    • Contained in that email/text will be a link to the new customer service form
    • In addition to reporting problems, this form will provide recommendations based on the type of problem you encounter
    This new tool is intended to fill in a gap. As always, the best course of action when you need immediate assistance is to call us.

    We hope you find this new tool helpful. If there's anything that you think we could do to improve your experience, please let us know.

    Happy riding!
