Station full? Don’t sweat, we have you covered

When docking stations are full, you have two options to return your bike:

 

- Touch the kiosk screen to get 15 minutes added to your ride at no charge and find a nearby station with an available dock.

 

- Or contact us at 1-877-782-2453 (RVA-BIKE) to create a virtual station and return the bike via the secondary dock. Just safely lock the bike next to the station with the secondary lock and wait for the beep and on-screen notification to confirm a successful lock.
