How Our Stations Work
The Santa Cruz BCycle system is a dock-based bike share system. Our 3.0 docks are installed in groups of 4 to 24 as a station. The docks allow users to check out our electric bikes using the BCycle app or a membership card.
These stations require minimal power to operate because there is no kiosk and the docks enter a sleep mode when not in use. As needed, the docks at the stations wake quickly to process new bike checkouts and returns for BCycle riders.
