“some glitches”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

It was a great value, only $6 for the whole day but thankfully we had the whole day because we encountered numerous problems while trying to rent the bikes.
The machine closest to our hotel, in front of the Public Library, was not working. had we known we would not have wasted 20 minutes trying to get it to work. then throughout the day we kept having problems by getting kicked back to the home screen while in process. But regardless of the computer issues we did enjoy ourselves. It was a great way to explore the city and not have to drive our car for a whole day. The weather was amazing too! More cities need this program.

We feel awful that you had issues on an otherwise enjoyable Bike Chattanooga trip. Unfortunately, we had a temporary issue that happened while the software was being updated. Please come back! It is all better now.

“So much fun!”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

I was hesitant and it took me a few minutes to get my bearings after many years without riding a bike but I am so glad I did! It was great to burn off some of the many extra calories I was consuming over the weekend! My husband and I had a blast riding bikes together. It was just a really fun way to see the city we've visited so many times before but from a new perspective. Love chattanooga even more now!

“Loved the bikes”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

The bikes are everywhere!! They have comfy seats and cheap 6 bucks for 24 hours can't beat that. Sure checking them in every hour can be a pain but still they have docks everywhere. The boyfriend and I loved it wish we had these in Atlanta!

Glad that you had a great time riding in Chattanooga. Stopping to check-in at a station each hour is the way to go! Watch for bike share in Atlanta very soon, but in the meantime, we hope to see you again in Chattanooga.

“easy and soooo much fun!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Just took a minute of two to check our bikes out with a credit card and off we were! Seeing Chattanooga by bike was the best, especially the foot bridge (yes, we checked with the police officer there: bicycles are allowed) and the bike path that runs along the river starting in the Bluff arts district. But also just to get us from the hotel to the aquarium and on to the coffee shop. You can use the bicycles for up to 60 minutes at the time, for an unlimited amount of check-outs for 24 hrs. for just $6 per bike. Longer than 60 minute usage just costs a bit more. It would have been better to have, say, 2 hrs instead of 60 minutes continuously: time flies when you're on a bike!

“Great way to see the town!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Although I am a native to the area, seeing Chattanooga by bicycle adds a entirely new perspective. It is so nice to slow down, not worry about parking and get to explore and check out bars, restaurants, shops you might not regularly. We go downtown and do so much more now with the Bike share than we ever did before. A recommendation I would like to see for visitors are free maps with attractions marked, or as an addition to the phone app that we use to find bikes and locations.
