    This app is bad. It's truly barely functional, it's counterintuitive, it's confusing and it breaks frequently. Look at what Lyft ran systems are doing with Citi Bike and Blue Bikes. Those a great easy to use apps. This is not. And if you use more than one bike system in the app across two countries like I do expect absolutely nothing to work.

  2. guest-avatar

    Unless you're under a free promo you'll end up being charged a lot of money to use rickety bikes with useless technology attached to them. The already hard-to-see screens and the buttons on the bikes don't work on half the bikes, they're completely black or unresponsive. Locking the bike at a Metro hub doesn't lock the bike. The contact email they tell use to use bounces back as non-existent. You can't end the ride from the app, their Customer Service Reps can't end the rides.

  3. guest-avatar

    AWESOME! I just joined the yearly membership after my initial try & LOVE this! I have fond memories from my childhood of my mother renting bikes with child seats in San Diego. This is a great thing to have here in Niagara Falls, NY in 2020!

  4. guest-avatar

    I still don't know how the charge works for a ride. It says £1.80 for an hour session but it always charges me more than £2 when it's not even an hour session.

  5. guest-avatar

    Horrible and very difficult to understand the flow. Still don't.

  6. guest-avatar

    App keeps shutting down

  7. guest-avatar

    The app itself is fine. Good account info, bike locations, etc. The act of actually unlocking and using a bike is a pain. For a pay as you go customer, the displays are not always easy to use and the keypads are not very responsive, either taking a long time to register a press or entering a number multiple times. It essentially takes way to long to do this task.

  8. guest-avatar

    Terrible app... But the bike experience is great. You need to make the payment options less painful. Allow the user to also rent multiple bikes without changing to a random payment plan. Make it more like the Bird app

    So annoying You try to pay on the app and it wont accept my card, freeze's me out, wont let me add a new card and will now charge me for the transactions that didnt go through. Useless to be honest. Wont be using them.

  10. guest-avatar

    Lame, it doesnt accept payment of any kind the continue button disappears after you input your cc number.

  11. guest-avatar

    Bikes are alright but if you have of the bike is broken, getting the next available bike is a nightmare. You have to report the bike as broken, cancel the ride (which can take anywhere between 1-10 minutes) and manually put in your account information into another bike once the cancellation finally goes through. I depend on these bikes alot, and when this problem occurs I have to accept that I'll most likely be late to whatever I was going to.

    I downloaded this app so I could travel around Atlanta Georgia while I'm here visiting. as soon as I tried to register it told me that none of my three emails were valid for payment. so I can't even use the app to use the bicycles. I signed up with jump instead and everything was exactly the same however it works. so go and use them instead. Yes they're mostly scooters by rather have something that works.

  13. guest-avatar

    Installed the app to locate bikes in New Orleans. The Social Bikes app only proposes me three network, in the UK and Czech Republic. The NOLA network is nowhere to be found. Fix how you handle geolocation.

    Tried this app with Gridbikes in Phoenix. No real explanation of how to use it, unclear how to check out a bike. Not one of the bikes had a functioning screen. User-unfriendly, especially for tourists and out of town people who are likely to want to use it on a one-time basis.

  15. guest-avatar

    It's really frustrating when the app doesn't locate my location when I give it permission and turn it on, I always open the app to be in Idaho. The "find me" option on the bottom right that looks like a target doesn't do anything 90% of the time...

  16. guest-avatar

    Rubbish. I'm in New Orleans but wants me to select a bike network from a list of networks in ENGLAND. I have an account with Blue Bikes NOLA I've researched further and discovered that cellphones are only offered access to bike networks in their home area. In my case Europe. if i can find (with difficulty) a wifi connection the app works correctly. This does not prevent me from renting a bike. I just can't find one! This is new and this problem did not exist last year What are they thinking of?

    Easy to use and responsive - faster than other bike hire apps I've tried to use. Really pleased with the app and the Derby e-bike hire scheme, they seem to have put a lot of thought into both and it's a step above 'first generation' ones.

  18. guest-avatar

    Abysmal customer experience. I signed up in the buffalo area and was excited to use the service while traveling. I didn't realize I had to use the app to rent a bike, but I signed up and provided payment information. After signing up I tied to use a bike but was informed my account was not active. I emailed the support, hoping they could resolve my issue. I provided my account number but then was asked to reach out to another team at a separate e-mail address. Using this app was a waste of time.

  19. guest-avatar

    Just stay away. GPS on the bikes are inaccurate and even when locking up right next to other bikes. Lost more money then I gain benefit wise. At this point, just walk. It's slower but you won't get randomly charged.

  20. guest-avatar

    It's ok but the map icons are now anchored to the center instead of the tip, making it harder to see exactly where bike racks are when zoomed out. This is a bug, it didn't used to be this way.

  21. guest-avatar

    Christina Michels


    Not even going to complete registration. Deleted. No PayPal integration? Not giving you a card for ad hoc service just to complete sign up *in case* I ride a bike. There's 5 other rideshare/alternative transportation apps on my phone that I can use instead.

  22. guest-avatar

    Matthew Tiffany


    The app partners with the HOPR app but when you sign up it does not make clear that you probably do not need Social Bikes if you have HOPR - the same only thing that Social Bike seems to do is charge you for a service you don't really need if you already have HOPR - you find and access the bicycles in the Tampa area through HOPR so the app is pretty useless. When I accessed a bike it just billed me through the HOPR app. Not sure what service this is supposed to provide? Also rates seem high.

    Total Garbage Getting started was fairly easy. Purchased the 2 bike day pass for 24 hours. Not 10 minutes into our ride, we got a message saying we were being charged $10 for being outside of the coverage area (we were literally .4 miles from where we picked up the bikes in clearly in the coverage area. Then our account was frozen. I'll be disputing the $26 (+$10 fee) if and when anyone in support ever answers the phone. Apparently they don't work on the weekend, when everyone is riding.

  24. guest-avatar

    Can't subscribe to new network. When I try to do so the app says to pick a plan, but the page is blank and there are no options. I just want to sign up and pay!

  25. guest-avatar

    Elizabeth Yzquierdo


    Terrible!!!! I tried 2 different hubs for bikes and both kept giving me error codes and i couldn't even unlock the bikes. I didn't even get to ride, but they definitely charged me. I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!! This system SUCKS!

  26. guest-avatar

    Very difficult cannot see the screen on the bikes most of them are broken the app is useless most of the codes don't work it is probably 30 minutes to get this to go through all and every single other bike sure I've ever used is a 2-minute process at the most to get your bike

  27. guest-avatar

    Grid bikes are in poor shape. So hard to check out a bike!

  28. guest-avatar

    The bike share is awesome. Like any innovative tech app there will be bumps in the road but what impresses me is how the company customer service responds and reacts to customers. The transparency is refreshing and pricing is reasonable.

  29. guest-avatar

    Richard McPhillips


    I love this app, so easy to use. It is always easy to rent a bike for a ride. My only suggestion would be that you add bikes to area trails and parks rather than just downtown Toledo.

  30. guest-avatar

    horrible user experience. unable to enter data. app interface is cumbersome and we never were able to rent bikes.

  31. guest-avatar

    Isabelle Shaner


    Hard to use interface. Drove all the way out to use these ans they didnt even work. Stayed out in the hot sun trying to figure out how to unlock the bike to ride it and it didnt work. waste of time.

  32. guest-avatar

    Benjamin Magallon


    Horrible coding. Can't recognize phone numbers to set up new customers.

  33. guest-avatar

    App says select the network I do and the next screen is supposed to be select the plan but it's blank no matter what network I select so I can't really say much about it except that's pretty lame

  34. guest-avatar

    Criminals! I downloaded the app to use on a visit to New Orleans and it did not recognize any of the bikes I saw. The bikes in New Orleans are now Uber Bikes. I've emailed for a refund at the address provided on the app and it gets returned undeliverable! The phone number is a circle of robot questions that never gets you to a human. I paid $5 to initiate an account and now I can't get in contact with anyone to get it back! CRIMINALS!!

  35. guest-avatar

    Clean interface, easy to register. Seems simple to use.

  36. guest-avatar

    I had to pay £1, because it wouldn't accept pennies. Nevermind that my debt was less than that and the app said that I could pay just the amount I owed.

  37. guest-avatar

    The key pads on the bikes don't work and the screens are so faded that there's almost no way of knowing what you're even looking at.

  38. guest-avatar

    Andrew Feathers


    Used while touring, pretty solid though the bikes occasionally had issues with connectivity. Would recommend.

  39. guest-avatar

    somehow, I'm stuck in the sign up process. the app tells me my phone number isn't unique.

  40. guest-avatar

    This app should be merged with JUMP Bikes as they are the same company. it's absurd to make LA users get two different memberships for essentially the same bicycles

  41. guest-avatar

    Walks with Reed


    Very disappointed. It makes you make an account and load money, but the none of the bikes have functioning systems....screens are unresponsive and dont let you onput anything. Probably wont get my $$ bsck so I have no sympathy for the company.

  42. guest-avatar

    after the app install and acct number for the bike I was unable to connect. bike never unlocked

  43. guest-avatar

    Just nothing but problems over and over. All different kinds of problems. A box of chocolate of problems.

  44. guest-avatar

    App works, bike reservation of like a minute is insane

  45. guest-avatar

    Can't register through app. More buggy junk sold to municipalities.

  46. guest-avatar

    There are so many opportunities to improve this app. Keep on climbing 💪

  47. guest-avatar

    Why don't you ask for confirmation before cancelling! I've accidently pressed cancel twice now just from unlocking my phone because the button is so near the fingerprint sensor

  48. guest-avatar

    The bikes are good to ride, but it's definitly more than 3p per minute

    I love bike is my car and also expensive so after several stolen bikes and constant tire repairs I decided to try a blue I am hooked... amazing ride and very easy to find...Great job guys thanks so much...

  50. guest-avatar

    I love our city bikes! Quality bikes, very reasonable rental, fun ride. Thanks!

  51. guest-avatar

    terrible experience app was not correct app for bicycles in the area where it said it was for getting a refund was impossible Do Not TRUST This App!!

  52. guest-avatar

    The App hasn t worked since uber bought the company. Constantly timing out

  53. guest-avatar

    Used in NOLA while in town. App (and bikes) worked really well for us. We were happy with our experience!

  54. guest-avatar

    Useless app. I couldn't register for an account.

  55. guest-avatar

    Not easy to use and instructions are not simple enough to understand.

    Christopher Heilman


    Works great and very convenient

  57. guest-avatar

    showed that they were the app for bike in Tampa, but once they stole my initial $8.00(which they added prompts to say that once you accept it's nonrefundable), the closest bike was thirty miles away.

  58. guest-avatar

    Unreliable with a high possibility of leaving you stranded with a non-functional bike.

  59. guest-avatar

    I've made a purchase, and they took the money, but for some reason they did not activated the account, nor answered to my mails

  60. guest-avatar

    I bought an hour worth of time for your coastal bikes in Tampa and it wont recognize that I'm standing next to one of your bike racks. In fact it wont recognize any of the dozen or so racks in all of Riverwalk in Tampa. Doing a chargeback on my card, your app is bad and you should feel bad.

  61. guest-avatar

    Low rating because they reduced the time you get on the yearly scheme from one hour to 30 minutes here in Brighton

  62. guest-avatar

    tiffany baiocchi


    I could not even unlock the bike and it charged me for a ride could not even take. save your money and just walk or take a scooter.

  63. guest-avatar

    most inconvenient process ever...dont try to sign up and ride bikes the same day

  64. guest-avatar

    Chris Lichfoldt


    I'm in Tampa and these bikes suck. The app sucks. The bikes are usually all broke.

  65. guest-avatar

    Tried in Phoenix, bikes wouldn't take keypad entry, tried 5 bikes for 30 minutes and gave up, I was still charged and never got a bike.

  66. guest-avatar

    No bikes show up. Completely useless.

  68. guest-avatar

    only covers 1/3 of my city. I cant go half the places i go without paying $10+

  69. guest-avatar

    There are typos in the app, which makes me very doubtful about the company.

    This app sucks since Uber took over. None of the bikes ever show. The customer service is completely unresponsive. Why is it that everything Uber touches turns to garbage?

  75. guest-avatar

    so buggy its pretty much unusable

  76. guest-avatar

    app kept freezing

  77. guest-avatar

    didn't work at all. wouldn't take my credit card or my number

  78. guest-avatar

    Their customer service is bad. They charge you for things that you didn't do. Their system sucks. Most of the bikes are broken. Their record of incidents is off. The whole system and their service is dysfunctional and disappointing

  79. guest-avatar

    greedy company who have just put costs up and lowered loyalty time from 60 to 30 minutes. disgusting. won't be using this service again. also all the bikes are out dated with slow systems. shocking!!!

  80. guest-avatar

    said my email wasn't valid

  81. guest-avatar

    bikes are always broken, lousy customer service

  82. guest-avatar

    Don't do it. Bikes aren't maintained.

    Doesn't take debit

  94. guest-avatar

    Don't use app

  95. guest-avatar

    App works really well and has lots of really handy, user-friendly features. I used the service lots and love instant response when I return a bike. Gotta change my previous 5 star to 2 App will not default to my location, regardless of the fact that I have all the permissions and location turned on. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, turned phone off and back on. Garbage. Keep getting Boise Idaho as my default location, I live in Canada....Yes, I've got my city as the only network.

  96. guest-avatar

    Extremely buggy app. Tried several times to unlock a bike but couldn't get past the "Accept terms and Conditions" screen. Bikes stations weren't showing up on the map. Wouldn't allow me to add a new credit card. At many stations, most of the bikes were out of service or screen wouldn't activate. Relay bikes, Atlanta, Galaxy S9+. EDIT: Over a year later, tried again. Still the absolute worst experience with an app I have ever had. Relay bikes, Atlanta should be ASHAMED.

  97. guest-avatar

    I had problems with this app until I set up my account through the website. Now that it is set up, it works pretty well.
