Whether you’re in need of a quick ride for work or play, bike share stations can be a great way to get to and from where you need to go.

Our Bike Share partner is Pronto Cycle Share which has 500 bikes at 50 stations located across the Seattle. Annual membership of just $85 gives users unlimited 30 minute trips every day of the year. Bike stations are conveniently located near transit hubs and shopping districts. Pronto Cycle Share is a great way to connect transit trips, complete the last mile of a commute, or just explore the hidden gems of the city.

Pronto bikes are designed for comfort and ease. Members also get free use of a Pronto bike helmet. Many businesses offer their employees a discounted membership option.

Bike Share 101:

Bike share allows users to take short trips easily without owning their own bike. The Pronto fleet is made up of heavy-duty, durable bikes found in a network of docking stations generally located about 1,000 feet apart. Bike share systems allow users to control their own travel and are intended to be used for short, quick trips – typically less than 2 miles.

Bike share can help you get around town faster and easier.

To ride, users can purchase short-term passes (24-Hour or 3-Day) or Annual Memberships to use the system. 24-Hour or 3-Day Passes may be purchased from any station kiosk using a credit or debit card. Annual Members enroll online and receive a personal key used to quickly unlock bikes from the docks.

Bikes can be returned to any station in the system, creating an efficient network with many possible connection points and combinations of departures and arrivals.
