Bike sharing is a new way of getting around Central Fort Worth. It’s affordable, clean, and simple. It’s good for your health, your pocket, and our environment.
Bike sharing is a system of bicycles available for checkout from a network of bike stations located within a few blocks of one another. As a bike-sharing member, you can unlock any of the specially designed bikes at any station and ride it to any other bike station. Fast, simple, inexpensive.
B-Cycle is a next-next-generation bike-sharing program. It is a zero-hassle, zero-emissions way to get around town. It’s a bike-sharing program that meets the transportation, health, and environmental needs of our communities. It’s free and spontaneous, but also practical.
B-Cycle is the only bike-sharing program that measures the actual distance traveled on each ride and keeps track of the calories you’ve burned and the carbon emissions you’ve prevented. All this information is available on your personal B-Cycle web page.
B-Cycle, LLC, based in Waterloo, Wis., provided the equipment, software, and branding to Fort Worth Bike Sharing.
Call Customer Service (817-348-0084) immediately so that we can suspend the card and prevent anyone else from using your card to gain access to a bicycle for which you are financially responsible.
A replacement card will be provided for a $5 fee.
While waiting for your replacement B-Card to arrive, you can check out bikes by using the kiosk at each station. You must present the credit card associated with your membership account.
Membership fees are non-refundable, but if you wish to suspend your account to prevent any new usage fees, call Customer Service at 817-348-0084.
Members can change their credit card information by logging into their personal B-Cycle web page and managing their account settings.
Membership periods begin the first time a bike is checked out or 30 days following registration - whichever comes first.
If you are unsure if your bike was correctly docked, please call 817-348-0084 to confirm.
If you are unable to check out another bike, this may indicate that the last bike was unsuccessfully docked - either it was not pushed in all the way or there were technical difficulties. Call 817-348-0084 to resolve the issue.
If you have a bike you wish to return, but there are no available docks at a station, you must locate a station with available docks and return the bike there. The kiosk located at each station will provide real-time information about which nearby stations have available docks. The kiosks at full stations will also add 15 free minutes to your ride so that you can take the bike to an open station without financial penalty. Simply go up to the kiosk at the full station, select More Options, and follow the on-screen instructions.
You can always check real-time dock and bike availability on the B-Cycle Now app available on iPhone and Android.
B-Cycle is a bike-sharing system designed to promote the constant use and turnover of bikes for short journeys. The pricing system provides incentives for members to keep their trips short. The longer the trip, the higher the usage fee. Bikes not returned within a 24 hours will be considered lost and members will be liable for a replacement fee.
For a longer, continuous bike riding, we recommend looking up area bike shops for rental information.
