Houston B-cycle is a "bike sharing" program that works as an additional transportation alternative for people living and visiting Houston.
At its core, a public bike sharing system is intended to be used for short trips in and around downtown Houston and surrounding urban areas. Houston B-cycle members can pick up a bike at any B-station and return it to that same station or any other B-station when they’re done. Membership to the system can be purchased online or at any kiosk. Members can use their credit card or B-card to unlock a bike in seconds. Returning a bike is even easier. Just roll it into a dock and walk away. The onboard B-cycle trip computer allows members that registered online to track all the miles they ride, the calories they burn and the carbon emissions they avoid.
B-cycle is not a bike rental - users who keep a bike out longer than 60 minutes will be charged additional fees.
