Once you've purchased a pass, there are three ways to release a bike.
- Use a TAP Card: If you are a Metro Bike Share passholder and have a registered TAP card, find a Classic Metro Bike, press the silver button on the dock and TAP your card to the lighted panel. You will hear three beeps when your bike is released.
- Use Your Phone Number or Credit Card: If you are a Metro Bike Share passholder, or if you purchased a single ride at a Classic Metro Bike station, you can use your phone number and credit card at the kiosk to release a bike.
- Use the Metro Bike Share app: Metro Bike Share passholders can release Classic Metro Bikes with the Metro Bike Share app and our partner app, BCycle.
When you are done riding, end your ride by returning the bike to a Classic Metro Bike Station. Push the bike firmly into the dock and listen for three beeps to confirm that the bike has been returned.
