Charlotte B-cycle is priced for short rides. Remember, it is bike SHARING, not bike renting.
After purchasing a 24-hour Pass or becoming a member, you can take an unlimited number of rides during your pass/membership period. All trips lasting 30 minutes or less (60 minutes or less for annual and student memberships) are included with your purchase and trips longer than 30 minutes will incur additional user fees.
Annual members get a special B-card that lets them check out bikes right from the bike's dock. This saves you money and gets you around faster!
