Different BCycle systems (cities, campuses, etc.) charge different amounts, and each system’s website provides all the details.
With Houston BCycle, walk-up users who pay at the kiosk have a flat rate of $3 per 30 minutes, plus tax. Memberships, which enable you to take unlimited 60-minute rides, are available online at Houston.BCycle.com or through the BCycle mobile app.
MEMBER USAGE FEE
Usage fees are charged based on the length of each ride taken by a member, and are typically broken down into half-hour increments. As a member, Houston BCycle gives you the first 60 minutes of use fee free, and then you incur a charge of $3.00 for each additional 1/2 hour after that. To avoid additional fee charges, simply check the bike into any available station, check it back out again, and your 60 minute clock starts over. If you are a monthly or annual member, you can enter your phone number or the credit card linked to your account at the kiosk each time you'd like to undock a bike. Mobile checkouts are available through the BCycle mobile app.
