The cost to use a BCycle is divided into two components: a membership fee and a usage fee.
A Membership fee applies to non members for the first half hour of use. Guests (also know as non members) who ride longer than 30 minutes will also be charged a usage fee. All riders are welcome to purchase a membership. A weekly membership is $35, plus tax. An annual membership is $88, plus tax.
Usage fees are charged based on the length of each ride taken by a member, and are typically broken down into half-hour increments. For weekly members, the first half-hour is free and usage fees are only assessed for rides that exceed 30 minutes. For annual members, the first 60 mins are free. Usage fees are only assessed for rides that exceed 60 minutes.
When a person has a weekly or annual membership, they pay reduced usage fees. They only pay usage fees for rides longer than 30 minutes (for a weekly member) and longer than 60 minutes (for an annual member). Any usage fees for weekly members are charged at the end of the week. Usage frees for annual members are charged on the last day of each month.
