These bikes are awesome, my girlfriend and I have had so much fun with them! I would have absolutely left a five-star review if it weren't for the fact that there's a hidden auto-renewed subscription. Once the subscription starts (and I don't remember opting into it recurring in the first place) this app makes it pretty complicated to cancel it. BCycle, I love what you're doing! Please make this better, send me a response, and then I'll change this to a five-star review right away :)

This app would be SO nice if there were EVER bikes available, but there just aren't during the semester. If you're considering this as a dependable means to get around town, don't bother. You're much better off getting your own bike. Seriously--you can pretty much count on there not being a SINGLE bike available during the semester. And when bikes ARE actually available, it is a gamble whether or not there will be a technical issue with it. When it works though, it's great...

Worked alright after some experimentation. The app is not very user friendly, but once I was finally able to buy a pass, the bike unlocked on the second try. Bikes themselves are quite nice, although mine had a little trouble shifting gears, probably due to the fact that, based on reading other reviews here, the people riding them don't know how to shift an internally geared hub. I also wish the plastic cover over the front didn't prevent from switching modes to use less battery than default.
