Pull up the app and see up-to-the-minute bike availability. Search station locations and addresses, to find the nearest bike or station. Save your favorite stations, and know the situation right away at your usual spots.

See info about your most recent ride, and all-time riding history. Know how long you’ve had a bike out with an accurate trip timer, and see confirmation of your completed trip after you’ve ended your ride.

Pick a destination and we’ll show you where to pick up and where to end your ride. Need a route suggestion? Tap a station pin or location and the app will sniff out the best way to your destination.

And of course, get your exercise credit when you pedal with a Google Fit integration.

Version 12.12.1

You know the pros when you see ‘em. In one swift motion, the phone emerges, the bike releases from the dock and before you can even blink, they’re riding off into the sunset. It’s beautiful. But not everyone is a pro. We wanted to help the newbies unlock a bike a little faster, so we built a slick animation on the Ride Code screen highlighting exactly where to enter your code so you can unlock and get going. One small step for man, a giant leap for all of bikerkind.

Version 12.11.1

You enter your password. Error. You try another one. Error. What about the password you use for almost everything else? Nah. OMFGHSKDFJSD. *Throws phone out the window.* Good news folks, we just made resetting passwords much, much easier. Now, the password reset link in the email takes you right to the app so you can reset your password with ease. And remember, make it unique with at least 30 characters, numbers, uppercase, lowercase, emojis, and hieroglyphics.

Version 12.10.0

The wind’s in your hair. Your legs are pedaling to their heart’s content. Your smile is so wide you’re probably swallowing bugs, but you don’t care. You don’t want this trip to end. You don’t even care about your allotted ride time. Cause, #yolo. So you keep going. Later, you’re spacing out watching some reality tv show, you’re like, “Hm, how much was that joyride?” So you pull up your ride history and wah-lah. Additional usage fees fees are right there. Where they should be.

Version 12.8.1

Parents aren’t supposed to have favorites. But they do. Just like we have a station we love more than others. And sometimes we move, get a new job, or fall in love with someone that doesn’t live in our neighborhood. So our favorite stations change. That’s why we updated your favorites list, so you can sort, arrange, and order your “favorite” stations to your heart’s content. Go ahead, shout your love for that station from the top of the screen, or the top of your roof if you have access.

Version 12.7.0

We want to make sure our new members know exactly how to get riding so we’re doing some work to clear up questions that we generally get-- how does this work? How long can I ride? What do I do with this unstoppable feeling of excitement I get when I’m on a bike? You know, the basics.

Version 12.6.1

We know you guys are perfect members. So, this update to our misdocking messaging might not apply to you. “What’s misdocking?” you ask behind your screen, excelling at everything always. It’s when *somebody* (never you) docks the bike but not quite right, so the lock doesn’t lock. Now if you do happen to misdock, you’ll get a push notification and a display message in the app. That message will stick around ‘til the bike is properly docked. (Not you cause you’re flawless from the inside out.)

Version 12.5.4

You know what they say about making assumptions. . . Well, to-date, our beloved app has been making some assumptions about how you think about distance, but perhaps you live in the US and think in kilometers. Or maybe your phone is set on Canadian English but you think in miles. Well now the choice is up to you. Go to settings to choose miles or kilometers. In the next release: Furlongs.

Version 12.3.0

We’re gearing up for our Women’s Bike Month celebration and part of the party prep is making discount codes easier to use in the app. Which should be a pretty big hint of what we’re putting in the goody bag. (It’s discounted rides.) Don’t forget to RSVP.

It’s time for your final August release! That means summer’s over, which means it’s Halloween, which means it’s 2019. Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, here’s the latest improvements. We made it easier to find your destination in search and cleaned up a couple smaller bugs for smooth sailing as we enter back to school season. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to enjoy the sun before summer sets on our white linen pants.
