Thanks for your interest in Spin! Below are the steps outlined showing how to use Spin Bikeshare:
First off, a smartphone will be needed to use our service. If you have one, great! All you will need to do is go to your native app store and download our app. The app is called Spin and usually comes up by searching "Spin Bikeshare".
Once downloaded, you can register by entering either your Facebook information or using your email. After creating a password, your account will be set-up pending your payment information and adding an initial balance of $5.
After all the steps above have been completed, you are now ready to use Spin! Access the bike map on the main page and locate the nearest "orange blip" on the map which indicates the nearest bike to your location. Once you locate the bike nearest to you, scan the QR code by selecting "Scan Now" and scanning the QR code located behind the bike, either on the bike lock or the bike license plate. Once scanned, the bike will unlock and you'll be on your way!
After your trip is over, end it by re-locking the bike - pull the lever on the lock down and secure it. Once you lock it, the bike trip will end on the app. That is it!
It costs $1 per every 30 minutes, per trip. For example, if your trip lasts 17 minutes, that counts as a $1 trip. If your trip lasts 43 minutes, that counts as a $2 trip. The charge will be deducted from your initial balance that you added when signing up, and you'll have to reload your balance once it is depleted. If you happen to be on a trip that costs more than your available balance, the remainder will be taken out from the payment option on file.
