What’s New

Version 12.12.0

You know the pros when you see ‘em. In one swift motion, the phone emerges, the bike releases from the dock and before you can even blink, they’re riding off into the sunset. It’s beautiful. But not everyone is a pro. We wanted to help the newbies unlock a bike a little faster, so we built a slick animation on the Ride Code screen highlighting exactly where to enter your code so you can unlock and get going. One small step for man, a giant leap for all of bikerkind.

As always, we’d love to hear from you, please shoot us a line at

Innovative app, generally fair price

This app and the service is really cool, innovative, and has a good design. The app is well formatted and it has a pretty good network within Minneapolis. I'm using it while I save up for a bike and find it very useful to get around when I don't want to pay for parking and would enjoy a bike ride. My only complaint is that you can't rent multiple bikes on different transactions at the same time. If someone in your party only requires a 30 minute ride, but another person needs the 24 hour pass, you are required to commit to one or the other. You cannot purchase one and then rent another bike at the other rental term. I know the solution would be to have the other person download the app and rent their own bike, but not everyone has a smartphone to do this so it would be helpful if this could be resolved. Besides that minor issue, the app is great!

Really impressed

I gotta say, I was skeptical of this new app because the original Nice Ride stations are sometimes out of date and broken. But this app is amazing. Really well designed and slick. The best part is the bikes! The new blue bikes are their best yet, almost better than my own. It's a really good move forward for this company, and I will be taking these new blue Nice Rides out every week.

Fine Improvement

I’m excited that the new version finally makes it clear how many bikes are available or how many slots open. And I finally know how to identify my Favorite or most used bike racks. The old app confused me. Will see what else is clearer now. Thanks also for an email address for feedback.
