We are upgrading our equipment and software and pausing MetroBike service in July 2024. Get the Details


We know that buses and trains can't always take you every mile of your trip. Bikes aren't just an eco-friendly transportation alternative; they provide access to Austin that other public transit options just can't.


MetroBike is a CapMetro-owned bikeshare system that helps you get around Austin on two wheels without having to buy a bike of your own! Whether you’re a student or commuter, a local or a visitor, we want to help you get where you need to go using CapMetro services from first to last mile. We have CapMetro provided and maintained bikes and e-bikes in our fleet of transportation services. Through the BCycle app, we’re able to offer riders one more way to get around town.

To reserve your MetroBike, please download the BCycle app.

You can choose from a wide offering of bike passes and access all the reservation information you need while on the go. You can pay-as-you-ride or purchase a membership for a day, weekend, month or year.

Once you have selected the pass that’s right for you, simply arrive at your nearest MetroBike docking station and retrieve your reserved bike using the BCycle app.

When choosing your bike, note that e-bikes are white while manual bikes are red and grey.


With 75 bike stations (and growing!), use this map to find the location nearest you.


All rides, regardless of your pass or membership level, are 60 minutes in length. Booked your bike for the day? You will need to return your bike to a dock within 60 minutes to avoid additional charges. After you’ve docked, feel free to begin a new ride using your same day pass. The clock will automatically restart once your bike has been docked.

Any ride lasting longer than 60 minutes will be charged $4/30 minutes.


To unlock bikes: Enter the dock number into your BCycle app and pull a bike from the dock.

To lock bikes: Push bike into dock. Remember that bikes must be docked every 60 minutes, no matter your pass type or membership level, to avoid additional fees.

For e-bikes: Activate electric assist Check the battery level before unlocking a bike.

To adjust the seat: Release the seat post clamp to adjust your seat height, then tighten the clamp.

Be safe: Always wear a helmet when riding a MetroBike.

Be smart: Follow traffic laws and use bike lanes when available.
