The official app for Nice Ride, Minneapolis's bike share system.
Nice Ride consists of a fleet of specially designed, durable bikes that can be rented from our network of docking stations throughout the city. Our bikes can be unlocked from one station and returned to any other station in the system, making them ideal for one-way trips. Bikeshare is a greener, healthier way to get around — whether you’re commuting, running errands, meeting friends, or just exploring the Minneapolis area.
The Nice Ride App gives you access to thousands of bikes in your area — unlock and pay directly from the app and get going.
The Nice Ride App also shows upcoming public transit departures, with walking directions to stations and stops. Including: Metro light rail trains, Metro Express & Local buses, Metro A & C Lines, Metro Airport shuttles, the Metro Northstar Link, Southwest Express & Local buses, Plymouth Metrolink buses, Maple Grove Transit buses and the UofM Campus Shuttle buses.
Within the app, you can purchase the following Nice Ride passes:

Ratings and Reviews
Innovative app, generally fair price
This app and the service is really cool, innovative, and has a good design. The app is well formatted and it has a pretty good network within Minneapolis. I'm using it while I save up for a bike and find it very useful to get around when I don't want to pay for parking and would enjoy a bike ride. My only complaint is that you can't rent multiple bikes on different transactions at the same time. If someone in your party only requires a 30 minute ride, but another person needs the 24 hour pass, you are required to commit to one or the other. You cannot purchase one and then rent another bike at the other rental term. I know the solution would be to have the other person download the app and rent their own bike, but not everyone has a smartphone to do this so it would be helpful if this could be resolved. Besides that minor issue, the app is great!
Easy and convenient
Great option for transportation: usually found a bike within a block. Only downside is they’re heavy, thus less efficient than lighter bikes, but very easy and safe to ride. Had some difficulty getting the app to work my first time, but it’s been flawless ever since. Very pleased with customer support helping me resolve an issue: I forgot to lock a dockless bike and the app alerted me when 4 hours had elapsed. I called customer support and they put a freeze on charges for that bike. Apparently someone else had started using it and had ridden it outside the network. But the next day it was returned and locked. NiceBike waived the $247 use fee associated with the 24 hours it was away. I would definitely use NiceBike again and recommend it to anyone.
We couldn’t think of a better way to explore the city of Minneapolis, Mississippi River and the Isle of Lakes! The system is very well designed to suit the needs of every adventure seeker! We didn’t even realize that there was a time limit to go to the next hub. We had the freedom to spend as much time as we pleased at all of our planned lookouts while having the flexibility to get there on a bike. All the bikes we rode were in great condition. Highly recommend this to anybody who loves to ride a bicycle. Just make sure to have enough charge on your cell phone as the whole system depends on data/app.
