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!
