Is it possible to pay Bike Share for Business fees with a check?

What happens if an employee stops paying their passholder fees? Will the company still be charged?

If your employee stops paying their passholder fees, their pass will expire, and the employer will not be charged until that passholder renews their business pass.

Is my company liable for user safety?

For employees

How can employees who are current passholders switch to a Bike Share for Business pass?

If an employee is a currently Monthly passholder, they can switch your pass to a business pass. Your business pass will become effective the day your existing Monthly pass expires.

If an employee is currently an Annual Flex passholder they will need to purchase a new monthly pass to participate. If the Annual Flex pass was purchased less than 2 months prior, an employee may be credited for the remaining value. Please contact customer service to inquire (call or text): (844) 857-BIKE (844-857-2453) or support@bikeshare.metro.net

How soon can employees start riding after signing up?

All passes purchased with a credit card become active immediately. Current passholders can continue using their existing Metro Bike Share Tap card; new passholders will receive a Metro Bike Share Tap card and Welcome Packet in the mail within approximately 5-7 business days. Until you receive your tap card, you can use the credit card associated with your pass or your cell phone number to check out a bike at the kiosk.

Who is responsible for usage fees?

The passholder is responsible for paying overage usage fees for rides that are longer than 30 minutes. The employer is not responsible.

How often will employees be billed?

Pass fees are charged when registration occurs and will automatically reoccur monthly unless you cancel your pass. Usage fees will be charged to your card at the end of each 30-day period.

Can I use my current TAP card for Bike Share?

Yes, bike share passes can be added to current TAP cards including ATAP and BTAP passes! Users just enter their TAP card number when they enroll in our program and the bike share pass will be added to that card. Only one bike share pass per TAP card.
