A One-Tap Ford GoBike App
Bay Area Bikes is a simple and easy-to-use App that helps you locate the closest Ford GoBike™ docking station. With one tap you can find the closest Ford GoBike station, how far away it is and in which direction, and how many available bikes and docks it currently has.
Find out how many available docks there are at your destination easily with the full-map mode. You can even set a ride timer to help track your Ford GoBike rental and prevent late fees.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is not helpful. The UI is confining - why show a map inside a small circle? You can't rent a bike from it, so it doesn't really provide that much utility. Lastly, I turned on notifications and a couple of hours i received a notification saying that I had 5 minutes left to return a bike. But I never rented one! I got fed up that the app doesn't let you rent and just walked home. So how am I receiving notifications saying that my bike rental is late? Horrible experience.
Developer Response ,
Tap the button on the bottom left of the app to show the full map with all stations. We are not associated with Ford GoBikes, so we have no access to your accounts or the workings of their system. This means you cannot rent a bike from the app, and if you set a time, you will have to unset it if you don't want it to go off, similar to an egg timer.
Glitches and shuts down
Running on iPhone where all other apps run fine. Maximum of about 2 minutes before freezing and shutting down. Happened now 4 times and I just downloaded today.
Ford gobike app needs work
Two stars may seem harsh, but the app is more confusing than helpful at times. After returning my bike and getting the green light AND a notification from the app that I had in fact returned the bike successfully, I later received a notification saying my bike was overdue. But I think it just says that if you click the countdown timer, whether or not you returned the bike.
Developer Response ,
Because we are an independent third party, we have no access to your Ford GoBike account. Thus, the timer within the app is like an egg timer. If you set it, you will need to unset it if you dock early or else it will go off at the specified time.
