  2. Click Get a Pass
  3. Select the pass or membership you want to purchase
  4. Once you've purchased your pass, go to the Nice Ride station you'd like to use and tap on the station icon in the map
  5. Select "Unlock a bike" and a 5-digit ride code will appear on the screen
  6. Type the 5-digit ride code into any dock with an available bike to unlock the bike
  7. When the light on the dock turns green, lift the bike by the seat to remove it from the dock
