Bicycle-Sharing (Nice Ride)

From April to November, Nice Ride’s bikeshare system offers bikes that can be unlocked using the kiosk, Nice Ride app or member key. Both green docking-station pedal bikes and pedal-assist e-bikes with a built-in cable lock are available. Nice Ride bicycles can be checked out and returned to any other Nice Ride station.
