COVID-19 Safety Reminders

Our field staff continues to work and maintain a safe, clean, and reliable bike share system for those who need it. Please continue to practice the following safe riding habits when using Metro Bike Share:

  • 😷 Wear a mask when in public, when using Metro Bike Share stations and while riding in places where it is consistently challenging to maintain a safe distance from others.
  • 🧼 Always wash or sanitize your hands before and after your bike rides, and avoid touching your face.
  • 📏 Practice physical distancing between yourself and others while riding and when using a bike share station.
  • 🚫 Avoid large gatherings and gatherings of mixed households.
  • 📱 To facilitate social distancing and minimize surface contact at stations, use the Metro Bike Share app to purchase passes and unlock Metro Bikes with your smartphone.
For these tips and more, check out our Riding Tips page.
Reminder: Riders accept responsibility to properly return and secure Metro Bikes at the end of each trip. Never leave a Metro Bike unattended during your trip. Riders will be charged penalty fees up to $2,500 for missing, stolen or improperly docked bikes.
