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 lets you purchase rides, unlock a bike, and ride right away. You can also view all station locations, see available bikes and docks, and get walking directions to them to start your ride.
Within the app, you can purchase the following:

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.
Junk, terrible support no bikes
I’ve used this for years and I’m guessing that it went to crap when Lyft took over. The last two years I’ve returned bikes and had them say I was riding for hours after 40 minutes. Messaged support and for the first time in 2019 they just charged me $32 and the second time after hours of calls with support, photos and videos of the return they finally refunded me. I’m an unlimited ride member, too.
Additionally, they pedal promotions like free membership for May/June for health care workers. They leave out the part where this is for new members only. I don’t get it, after being here in the Twin Cities for years, you’d think they’d get better. Nope, they pulled dock-less bikes for 2020 and they removed them from Saint Paul completely. I live on 38th and Hiawatha station, next to a huge hub. Often the bikes aren’t available and they gave up on maintenance. I hope they find a new vendor. The Lyft takeover removes the local component of this and its a complete free for all.
