Be like Nike...Just Do It

These bikes were one of the best things I experienced in Boston/best purchase made. They were so easy to figure out, and they were a great deal. I would highly recommend getting the monthly pass if you are here for two days. It allows you to rent as many bikes as possible. The app is fantastic, it tells you how many docking stations are open or how many bikes there are at each station. These bikes were a total feet saver and allowed us to see SO much of Boston in an efficient yet fun way. The city is SUPER bike friendly. I HIGHLY recommend using the bikes. Just make sure you read the helmet law if you are under 16. Happy riding!! 🚲

It would be a fine app if I could actually do anything with it

I’ve been in Boston for a couple weeks now, and I also enjoy biking. Paying $20 a month for a bike seemed like a pretty solid deal. I couldn’t bring my own because it would’ve been very troublesome getting it here. But the problem is that the app simply won’t let me purchase a pass. I’ve already put in a payment method but every time I try buying a pass it just says that the transaction failed. I’ve tried multiple cards but none of them go through. It also won’t let me buy a bike at the station without my physical card, meaning I have to pay $2.95 every time I want to ride a bike. When I try enough times, it just tells me to call customer service, which was no help. The lady just told me that the bike station was down and to try at another one. That wasn’t even true. I literally got a bike out from that station later with a physical card. I’d like to not have to pay almost $3 every time I want to go riding. If this gets fixed then I’m sure the app itself is fine. But until then, this app literally is useless.

Easy app

This app is great it was easy to enter in my credit card information and check out various bikes throughout the Cambridge and Somerville area. I was able to find stations along my route and was grateful to have a two hour limit with the all day pass. I would love if New York City followed in Massachusetts steps by allowing for an all day pass as well. I will definitely use the app again when I’m back in Massachusetts.
