The app itself is fine. Good account info, bike locations, etc. The act of actually unlocking and using a bike is a pain. For a pay as you go customer, the displays are not always easy to use and the keypads are not very responsive, either taking a long time to register a press or entering a number multiple times. It essentially takes way to long to do this task.

Before arriving in Brighton I thought I could rely on this cycle network to get around. So wrong. After 15 mins spent trying to unlock multiple bikes that all have horrendous input lag yet require a lot of inputs and you to read ToC I gave up. it's quicker to crawl to your destination then use these bikes. of you manage to actually unlock one.

Abysmal customer experience. I signed up in the buffalo area and was excited to use the service while traveling. I didn't realize I had to use the app to rent a bike, but I signed up and provided payment information. After signing up I tied to use a bike but was informed my account was not active. I emailed the support, hoping they could resolve my issue. I provided my account number but then was asked to reach out to another team at a separate e-mail address. Using this app was a waste of time.
