Frequently Asked Questions

Can you pay with cash?

Currently, Houston BCycle does not accept cash payments.

How do I know if my BCycle was returned properly?

When returning your BCycle, make sure you push the bike all the way into an open dock. You should hear 3 beeps and see the green light flash to confirm your return. Try giving your bike a tug to see if it comes back out. Make sure to opt-in to text messages–you’ll receive a text every time your b-cycle is properly docked!

What if I want to keep the bike all day?

Bike sharing is meant for short trips. That’s why our pricing model is based on 30/60-minute trips. If you want to ride around Houston for the entire day, we recommend contacting a local bike rental shop.

Can I reserve a BCycle ahead of time?

Bike sharing is a public transit option–therefore, we cannot allow reserved bikes. However, if you are part of an organization that would like to reserve a group of bikes for a special event, please reach out to [email protected] for pricing info.

What happens if the bike gets lost or stolen?

Contact Customer Service immediately at (713) 865-3662. You are financially responsible for any and all bikes checked out of a station on your card. If the bike you checked out is not recovered, you will be responsible for the replacement cost, $1200 plus sales tax.

What if I want to cancel my membership? Do I get a refund?

All membership fees and usage fee sales are final. If you wish to cancel your membership, please feel free to contact Customer Service (713) 865-3662 to notify them. However, there is no refund under the terms of purchase.
