Usage Fees

The first 30 minutes of each ride are included in the pass price. If you keep a bike out for longer than 30 minutes at a time, it's an extra $4 for each additional 15 minutes.

To avoid additional usage fees, keep your rides to 30 minutes each. Take as many rides as you want while your pass is active!

A $101 security deposit hold will be placed on your card when you purchase a pass. If you incur usage fees, your card will be charged. The fee for a lost or stolen bike is $1200 (+ tax).
