How Nashville B-cycle Works

Follow these easy steps

Purchase a membership online or at any B-station.

  1. Our system offers various types of memberships: 24-hour, 7-day, 30-day, and annual memberships.
  2. All membership levels can be purchased online (credit card required).
  3. Only 24-hour memberships can be purchased at B-stations (credit card required).

Select

Choose a bike from any B-station.

If you do not have a B-card and have not yet purchased a membership:

  1. Touch the screen to start.
  2. Follow the instructions on the touchscreen to purchase a 24-hour membership.
  3. When prompted, select the dock number of the bike you wish to check out.
  4. The kiosk will unlock the bike from the dock you chose. The dock holding the bike will beep until the bike is removed.

If you do not have a B-card, but already have purchased a membership:

  1. Touch the screen to start.
  2. Select 'No' when asked if you would like to purchase a membership.
  3. Follow the prompts on the touchscreen. When prompted, swipe the same credit card you bought your membership with.
  4. When prompted, select the dock number of the bike you wish to check out.
  5. The kiosk will unlock the bike from the dock you chose. The dock holding the bike will beep until the bike is removed.

If you have a B-card:

  1. Choose one of the locked bikes.
  2. Press the silver button on the bike’s dock.
  3. Touch your B-card to the square behind the silver button.
  4. Remove the bike once the locks open (dock will start beeping after the bike is unlocked).

Ride

Grab your bike and go.

  1. Adjust your seat, put on your helmet, and go.
  2. Rides of less than one hour incur no usage fee.
  3. Usage fees apply for all rides longer than one hour (see rates page).

 

Return

Return your bike to any B-station.

  1. Return your bike to any B-station by rolling it into an available dock.
  2. Wait for three rapid blinks of the green light and three quick beeps. That is your signal that the bike has been securely returned.

Please Note: Bikes checked out longer than 24-hours may incur fees for lost equipment.
