Using Pacers Bikeshare

What is bikeshare?

Bikeshare is a public bicycle sharing system where bikes are available to individuals to use for a fee. In Indianapolis, a network of 50 bike stations are located within a few blocks of one another on or near the Indianapolis Cultural Trail: A Legacy of Gene and Marilyn Glick and across the city near trails and bike infrastructure. Pacers Bikeshare bikes are available when you need them near your favorite spots, your office, or your neighborhood. Once you are done with your ride, simply dock your bike at any of the available stations.

When is the Pacers Bikeshare system available?

The Pacers Bikeshare system is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

What do I do if a station is empty?

Use the BCycle App to view the map and current bike and dock availability at any station.

What do the lights and sounds on the dock signify?

A Pacers Bikeshare dock beeps when a bike has been unlocked or when the bike has been returned.

When the bike is unlocked, the dock beeps continuously until the bike is removed (or 30 seconds, whichever comes first). The green light will also flash from the time the bike is unlocked until it is removed from the dock.

When a bike is returned and properly inserted into the dock, the dock will beep three times very quickly, and the green light will likewise blink three times very rapidly.

If the red “X” is lit on the dock, there is a problem with either the bike or the dock itself. Try a different dock!
