Augmented reality view:
Use your iPhone camera to view the nearest docking stations showing bike availability, direction and distance.
Usage Fee meter:
start your journey timer and have it automatically calculate your usage fee based on the time you've had the bike. Set the timer to alert you when your fee increases, even if you've closed the app. A handy icon indicator lets you know the fee at a glance.
Powered by Apple maps making them fast and easy to use. The map displays all the locations currently provided by TFL. Plot directions from you current location to the nearest docking station, choose a destination from the station list, from your favorites, or use the address search to find a location in your city. Directions automatically route through the nearest docking stations. (note: directions currently use a combination of "walking" and "driving" routes)
We have completely redesigned the maps interface. The map now displays docking stations as clusters when map is zoomed beyond a threshold, making maps and directions easier to read. New, smaller, dock icons are now color coded if stations have no bikes or no spaces. We also added manual dock refresh button (dock details are still updated automatically as well). The search has been rolled into the maps interface and a new journey planner has been added. When a route is requested, distances and times are displayed and clickable icons are presented for each waypoint.
Add any docking station to your favorites list for quick access or use the search facility to add a location of your choice. Delete items from your favorites at any time.
Docking Station list:
Automatically ordered so the nearest station appears at the top. All stations display their distance from your current location as well as the number of available bikes and spaces. Easily show the location on the map, show directions from your current location or add to your favorites.
