BCycle Usage Rates

Des Moines B-cycle is priced for short rides. 

Trip time differs depending on the kind of pass purchased. The Single Trip & 24hr passes have free first half hour rides, with additional charges accruing after the initial 30 minutes. The Monthly & Annual passes have free 60 minute rides, with additional fees beginning to accrue after one hour.
 
Think of the user fees as similar to keeping a library book for an extra day.  Keep the bike longer if you wish, but there's a nominal charge.

Please note that applicable sales tax will be applied to all memberships and usage fees.

B-card

Monthly and Annual members get a special B-card that lets them check out bikes right from the bike's dock. B-cards are mailed to new members once a month, so it may be a few weeks before you get your card. So not only does the B-card save them money over the other plans, it gets them around faster.
