Apps track bikesharing in real time

Do you use B-Cycle? Did you know that you can track dock and bike availability online in real time? Knowing ahead of time which stations are full or empty makes bikesharing tremendously more user-friendly.

Online maps accessible from your computer are available for both Denver and Boulder, and smart phone apps are free to download for iPhone and Android.

Happy bikesharing!

    i’ve written an iphone app for bcycle with much more functionality including bike lanes and trails and google bike directions-

    http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/denverbike/id411286130

    If anybody wants to try it out, email me david dot mintzer at gmail dot com and i’ll send you a coupon code to download it for free.

    here’s to hoping the new mayor gives some financial support to bcycle so they can expand beyond downtown (wash park and s. broadway would be highest on my list).

      I just purchased your app and told the people at Turin Cycles in Denver about it. I’m looking for some instructions, though. For example, what do the different color routes mean? And the D1, D2, etc. I don’t understand those points.

    That app would be great if I lived in Tulsa. Every time I load the program, the map shows Tulsa and there’s no way to change it. I wouldnt bother downloading this for Android.
