To use Nice Ride, you need a subscription. 24-hour subscriptions can be purchased using a credit card at the pay station located at each Nice Ride station. Users can also purchase a 1 year subscription at substantial savings over 24-hour subscription by signing up on line. 24-hour subscribers will be issued unlocking codes at the pay station, 1 year subscribers will receive a Nice Ride key. Simply enter the unlocking code or insert your key in the dock of an available bike. When the green light turns on, pull the handlebars firmly toward you to release the bike.
You can return your bike to any station in the system. Choose an empty space and push your bike firmly into the dock. When the bike is properly locked, the green light on the dock will turn on. Make sure the green light turns on. A bike that is not properly returned remains your responsibility. If you have trouble locking your bike, please try another dock.
Go to the pay station and insert your credit card, or enter the number on the back of your key to get another 15 free minutes to get to another station. At the pay station, you can check the status of nearby stations to find an available bike dock.
Just lock your bike at a station and notify us by pushing the red button on the dock. In case of difficulty contact customer service at 1-877-551-6423. Never abandon a defective bike. It remains your responsibility until it is properly returned.
Nice Ride bicycles are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from April to November. All Nice Ride stations will be removed from the streets during the snowy winter months.
Nice Ride is specifically targeted at short term rentals. If you would like to rent a bike for an extended period of time, we recommend that you use a local bike rental service.
