From the app
Open the Lyft app
Look for the nearest available station on the map screen. Be sure to enable location services for the app.
Tap “Unlock a bike”
It is not possible to reserve or hold a bike at this time.
Scan the QR code located on the front of the bike.
Enjoy your ride!
At a kiosk
At the station kiosk, press the "Getting Started" button on the kiosk screen.
Insert your credit or debit card.
Choose how many bikes you'd like – up to 4
You should then receive a 5-digit ride code. Enter this into the keypad on the dock next to an available bike. Each ride code is good for one single use.
When the light turns green, the bike is unlocked.
Remove it from the dock by the handlebars or lift the seat to release it.
If you want to ride again while your pass is active, just tap the “I already have a pass” at any station kiosk, and insert the same credit card into a kiosk to get a new ride code. (Don’t worry! You won’t be charged again.)
With a Bike Key
To unlock a bike with a key, insert your bike key into the slot on the dock next to an available bike.
When the light on the dock turns green, the bike is unlocked. Pull the bike out of the dock by the handlebars or lift the bike by the seat to release it.
