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!

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.

Great interface, but too easy to spend money

Fiddle Buckets Jr.

The interface is very nice, looks pleasent and it's very responsive.

But boy, be careful what you tap on or you'll get charged $4 super easily. The app doesn't confirm anything with you, doesn't warn you that you are about to spend money. Things happen several screens before you know what you're doing - I just wanted to check make sure I could rent a bike when I wanted to, and boom - I rented a bike before I had even left the house.

You'd be better off not signing into your account and using the app as informational maps only. It's a much improved app over the last one for this purpose.
