Day Pass

Perfect for tourists and visitors looking to explore Minneapolis like never before – on two wheels!

Use it to get to local attractions or for a ride along the lake. It's just like renting a bike but with more flexibility – you don't have to return it to where you started, and you don't have to worry about finding a safe place to lock it up if you want to stop for lunch, go to a museum, or explore on foot.

How to Buy a Pass

The Day Pass costs $6 for unlimited 30-minute rides on a Classic bike in a 24-hour period. See extra fees for longer rides or if you upgrade to an ebike.

The best way to buy a pass is through the Nice Ride app. Purchase your pass, find a bike, scan its QR code to unlock, and be on your way in minutes!

Get the App

If you don't have a smartphone, passes can also be purchased at any Nice Ride station kiosk. Find a nearby station on the System Map, then follow these kiosk instructions to buy a pass and unlock a bike.

Extra fees

The first 30 minutes of each Classic bike ride are included in the pass price. Any trips longer are just $0.22 per additional minute of ride time.

When you upgrade your ride to an ebike, it will be an extra $0.15/min.

Ebike parking is free at Nice Ride stations, e-stations, and University of Minnesota bike racks. You’ll be charged $1 for parking an ebike at a public bike rack in the service area. Parking outside Minneapolis city limits incurs a $25 fee, and parking violations may incur a $25 fee. Parking violations include locking the ebike to itself, private property, trees, signposts, or any other structures as well as blocking pathways, sidewalks, or ramps.

If you incur any usage fees, your card on file will be charged. The fee for a lost or stolen bike is $1,200.
