FAQ

What is bike share?

Bike share is an innovative and fun 24/7 transportation system. It is perfect for both point-to-point trips and scenic rides. Users are provided with the ability to download a mobile app, sign up for the system and pick up a bike from any of the convenient bike hubs and return it to any other hub within the system area.

Where can I find bikes?

100 bikes are located throughout Toledo. Look for hubs near you by downloading the Social Bicycles app or by checking our map.

How do I take out a bike?

First, you need to register for an account above. You’ll be assigned an account number and you’ll get to choose a 4-digit member PIN. Find a bike on the System Map above or mobile app, and type your account number and PIN into the keypad on the back of the bike. You can also reserve a bike ahead of time from the website or mobile app, so the bike will be waiting for you – you’ll just need to type in your PIN when you arrive.

Can I reserve a bike ahead of time?

Yes, reservations can be made through the Social Bicycles mobile app or on the web 15 minutes in advance.

Do I need to take the U-lock when I ride?

Yes, always place the U-lock in the holster on the rear left side of the bike.

Can I put a "hold" on my bike while I run errands?

Yes, there is a “hold” button on the bicycle’s keypad. Press this button and lock the bike around a bike rack to take a stop without ending your ride. Once back at the bike, just press “unlock” and enter your PIN code.

How do I end a ride?

To end your ride, lock a bike to a station. Insert the U-lock into the two designated slots on the back side of the bike, pushing the lock in until it latches. Wait until you feel the click and see the “thank you” screen on the LCD display. You can end a ride by returning your bike to any station with an open rack – you don’t have to bring it back to where you picked it up, making it ideal for one-way trips. Find available docks on the System Map or mobile app. 

How can I make sure the bike is locked?

Confirm by tugging the U-lock in both directions to make sure it is latched. Look out for the “Thank you” screen on the LCD display above the keypad.
