Reclamació no solucionada
Funciona molt bé. Però el mes d’Octubre del 2020, per un malentès, el meu marit i jo vàrem activar el ticket al mateix temps cadascú al seu mòbil , per el mateix cotxe, al mateix lloc i hora, amb una diferencia d’un segon. I vàrem acabar pagant 2 tickets. Vàrem reclamar per @ però no ens han ni contestat. L’aplicació no hauria de permetre fer mes d’un ticket, per el mateix cotxe, mateix lloc i hora. No en aquesta dimensió!
Developer Response ,
Hola Dàlia. En aquest cas et recomanem contactar-nos mitjançant el suport tècnic que trobaràs a la mateixa app. Se t'assignarà un número de cas i et donarem resposta el més aviat possible, una vegada revisada la petició. Salutacions!
Do not bother if you’re a tourist
TLDR: If you want to call a foreign city government to get approved for a 5 minute bike ride, 5 stars probably!
Pros: tons of bikes
Cons: tons of bike because it’s impossible to sign up for the service, but the developer doesn’t think it’s important to notify you of that until you’ve downloaded the app, filled in your details, added your passport, verified your email, and then returned to the app to “activate the bicing service” - at that point you’re told it’s impossible to use a passport to rent bikes and to literally call Barcelona. Call the city of Barcelona and get help (no number provided, as if that would help).
Developer Response ,
In recent weeks we have detected a high movement with electric Bicing and this has caused greater pressure on its maintenance. The process of transforming 1,000 mechanical bicycles into electric bicycles has begun to reduce this pressure. The performance will be carried out progressively until the end of the year. Thank you and we are sorry for the inconvenience.
Bicing is unreliable
I can’t count the amount of times I’ve had issues with this app, it is so buggy and bicing is such a bad service, there are 1-2 electric bikes per 15-20 mechanical ones so if you were counting on that don’t. When there ARE available bikes, half of the time the app has an error where it doesn't let you unlock bikes or says they are in service for days in a row. They customer service is a joke and 99% sure its an automated reply every time. I usually have to walk to 4 stations and won’t find bikes. I don’t recommend it
