Bike Rentals at City Centre
We will no longer be renting out bikes. There is a new bike program in Victoria that allows customers to rent a bike through the U-Bicycle app.
They work on a stationless bike share system, where, by using a mobile app, users can pick up the bike from any legal parking place and ride it to their destination. The key to the bikes is a barcode code stamped on the locking mechanism fastened to the rear tire. Using the mobile app, riders can locate a bike near them, then scan the barcode to release the mechanism.
U-bicycle says the service will cost riders $1 per 30 minutes and as ridership grows they will scale up Victoria’s fleet of bikes from 150 to 300.
Customers can register online at https://www.u-bicycle.ca/. If you have any questions about the bikes, please contact U-Bicycle directly.
