Bike-Sharing (Nice Ride)

Bicycle-Sharing (Nice Ride)

From April to November, Nice Ride’s bikeshare system offers bikes that can be unlocked using the Nice Ride app, a member key, or a docking station kiosk. Both classic green docking-station pedal bikes and pedal-assist e-bikes with a built-in cable lock are available. Classic bikes can only be parked at Nice Ride docking stations, while e-bikes can be parked at e-stations, public bike racks, and docking stations.
