New to Movatic?

The bikes rent for $5/hour, charged at the beginning of the hour. Allow at least 5 minutes to lock the bike back to the rack. 
Selecting a Bike?
Once at a station (see locations below), hit “Nearby,” then “Select a Bike.” Enter the 5-digit bike number on the frame beneath the handles. Hold your phone near the lock beneath the seat to unlock. After the cable is released, manually remove it from the lock. 
Having issues?
Check that your bluetooth has permission to use the app. If issues persist, then lock bike at the station, go back to the main menu, “Report Problem”, and leave us a detailed description. Expect resolution within a few business days.
Lock Your Bike?
The lock is the device beneath the seat. When the app allows you to lock, insert the cable and gently move the orange tab down to place the lock between the spokes. Rotate the wheel if the spokes block it from locking. 
Evening Ride?
Bikes are available to start renting from within a half hour of dawn to about an hour before dusk. You can still end rentals after that time.
Change your Mind?
There is a five minute grace period after the bike is unlocked where you can decide to end ride without charges. If this is due to mechanical issues, please “Report Problem” to let us know.
