Pace Bike Share $10 Ride Credit for New Users – CABQ Employees 


How to Use Pace Bike Share in ABQ

Pace is a new type of bike sharing that's just like riding your own bike. With Pace, riders rent one of the 250 bikes from any of Pace’s 50 dedicated bike racks, or from any public bike rack available throughout the city. Bike share trips are typically short distances and a brief amount of time. This service supports Albuquerque’s bike-friendly culture and more than 400 miles of bike lanes in the area.

To use Pace, riders download the free "Pace Bike Share" app, available in the App Store or Google Play. Riders find available bikes and parking locations in the app and unlock bikes at the touch of a button. Rides cost $1 per 30 minutes. Employees are encouraged to try it for offsite meetings near their office or for a short ride at lunch.

$10 Ride Credit

Zagster, the Pace Bike Share vendor, has graciously provided a promo code for city employees to receive $10 in ride credit when they create a new account with Pace.  The code is: CABQPace

The offer is a one-time registration code and cannot be used with other promotional codes.  When employees sign up with a new account for Pace it will load $10 in Pace Ride Credit to the new user's "wallet" contained in the app.

How Pace Works

Pace bike share is open to anyone 18 years of age or older. Eligible participants must have a valid credit or debit card to become a member. Once a rider had downloaded the Pace app, renting a bike is easy:

1. BORROW - Find bikes near you in the Pace app (App Store or Google Play). When you enter the bike number into the app on your mobile device, the lock will pop open. Unplug the security cable and hop on.

2. ENJOY YOUR RIDE! Select "Hold Bike" in the app if you’d like to keep your bike during a quick stop. Grab a coffee and your bike will wait.

3. RETURN - Park at your destination by locking to a Pace rack or any public bike rack. Push the back tire lock closed and secure with the cable.

This mix of intelligently placed bike share racks, plus the freedom of being able to lock Pace bikes to public racks, enables true point-to-point travel while ensuring riders can reliably add bike sharing to their daily transit mix. Bike share also complements existing public transit, providing the first and last mile of connectivity by filling in gaps where no other mode exists. Bike share is a healthy, sustainable, and affordable form of public transportation.

Pace Bike Share is offered by Rio Metro Regional Transit District (Rio Metro). Additional information can be found by clicking Pace ABQ.
