Bike sharing is a great way of getting around your neighborhood, city, and county. It’s affordable, clean, and simple. It’s good for your health, your pocket, and the environment.
Imagine a network of bike stations located within a few blocks of one another throughout your community. As a Broward BCycle member, you can unlock any of the specially designed bikes at any station and ride it to any other bike station. Fast, simple, inexpensive. It’s no wonder bike sharing has exploded in popularity all over the world!
Broward BCycle 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. One that adapts to any size city, corporation, or campus. It’s fun and spontaneous, but also practical.
Broward BCycle relies on the integration of hardware and software to keep track of members and bikes, and all the interactions between users and bikes. Proprietary GPS (global positioning system) and RFID (radio frequency identification) technologies make it possible for bike sharing to be so smart that it is simple for users.
All rides are tracked by the system and associated with members. Data such as distance, duration, calories burned, and carbon offset are captured and uploaded to personal web pages at Broward.BCycle.com.
Bike rental is generally intended for longer term use - several hours or days at a time - like traditional car rental. Bike sharing, on the other hand, is more similar to a taxi cab ride – short, point-to-point trips across town. Bikes in a bike-share system are available when you need them and safe and secure when you don’t! You can return them 24 hours a day and are encouraged to join as a member to receive the best rates.
If you would like to rent bikes in Broward County - long term we recommend the following:
According to Florida Statue 326.2065(d) Bicycle Regulations: A bicycle rider or passenger who is under 16 years of age must wear a bicycle helmet that is properly fitted and is fastened securely upon the passenger’s head by a strap and that meets the federal safety standard for bicycle helmets, final rule, 16 C.F.R. part 1203. Bicycle helmets can reduce the risk of serious head injury by about 50%. We recommend everyone wear a helmet.If you would like a free bicycle helmet contact Recyclable Bicycle Exchange, a local non-profit at (954) 540-7609.
When a bicycle is returned, the Broward BCycle system updates the member’s account.
Go online to your personal Broward BCycle web page and suspend your card, or call customer service 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 $5.
While waiting for your replacement B-card to arrive, you can check out bikes by using the BCycle app on your phone.
Call Customer Service.
Return a damaged bike to a B-station, if possible, or if that is not possible, securely lock it and contact Customer Service. Do not ride a bike with damage that affects its safety features.
Members are financially liable for damages to bikes under their care. Refer to Terms and Conditions for your system.
Your membership period begins the first time you check out a bike.
