Whoever came up with this idea is simply genius! Great way to get around the city, we had a bus tour and used these for the 2 days we were in town and it worked a treat. so much faster than walking and the breeze is nice too. I would recommend downloading the app so you can get live updates on how many bikes are at each station and where the closest station is. The app also has a rental timer to help return the bike within 30 mins to avoid rental charges.
READ THE BOARD BEFORE RENTING!!! I have read a few reviews on here of people getting confused with the pricing and thinking they could keep the bike for the whole day for $7. It is not hard to understand and my husband and I found it very clear in the fact that the rental was $7 for 24 hours and during that 24 hrs if you returned bike within 30 mins it was free, and then it had the charges for if you returned after the 30 mins. simple! there are so many bike stations around that it was so easy to re dock the bikes within the 30 mins period, we never went over our time period and were not inconvenienced by having to re dock the bikes. Occasionaly we docked and re docked straight away to avoid charges if we were planning on riding a bit further.
