Houston BCycle is priced for quick rides. Walk up users can register at any kiosk for $3 thirty minute trips. $9 per month memberships and $99 annual memberships are available online. After joining as a member, you can take an unlimited number of rides during your membership period and there is no additional charge for rides less than 60 minutes.
DO NOT KEEP THE BIKE OVERNIGHT!!!! Usage FEES begin for all rides over 60 minutes!
Think of the usage fees as similar to keeping a DVD for an extra day. There's a fee, right? Same with bike-sharing: Keep the bike longer than 60 minutes if you wish, but there's a nominal charge.
