Can’t unlock a bike from the app
Many steps involved—the app is really just a map, which is confusing. Makes you use a second app, and even that demands you log in to your TAP card. Even with a registered Tap card, still can’t get a bike — it insisted my registered Tap card wasn’t registered with Metro Bike, though there is no page to do that on. Bizarrely difficult, multi-app process that never even had a solution.
Worst app experience, so disjointed and confusing.
So you arrive at the bike and the instructions on the stand say just to tap. Then you have to go to this app, which directs you to download the BCycle app. Then that directs you to the metro web page to create an account and register your tap. Then you have to figure out how to enroll in the program, which once you figure out where to do that it only allows you to register for longer term programs, not on the go rides. At this point we gave up and drove. I can’t believe this is what you are using my tax dollars for. Take a look at all other large city bike share programs, they are so easy and fast. LA I shake my head.
Wow. This is what our tax dollars are going towards? My parents are in town and we thought it would be great to use these bikes. After 30 frustrating minutes trying to understand how this app works, we decided to walk instead. As an app designer myself I’m amazed at how confusing it is to unlock a bike. It’s as if the Metro designers worked hard to make it especially difficult.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
