3.) You can specify how long you will use the bike. We prefer that bikes be used for a maximum of six hours, unless you have a job or internship. If you do, please write “job” or “internship” in the comments field. If you have any other reason why you may need the bike for more than six hours, let us know in the comments section. Your request will likely be approved unless there is high demand.

WE PREFER THAT YOU RESERVE A BIKE AT LEAST 24 HOURS IN ADVANCE

Once your reservation is approved (you’ll get an email)

3.) Take your keys out of the box (your keys will be marked with green light)

In case of locker or box return difficulties

1.) Make sure that the bike is in a secure place; if the box won’t open to return the bike, lock it up outside or keep it in your room until you can get assistance
