Ok, once you get used to it. Once you get to the point where the app open directly to map view, and figure out that the little reticle icon will use GPS to find all stations near you, then it works fairly well. In map view I recommend making "avail. Bikes" and "open docks" numbers a different color. I keep forgetting which is on top and I have to tap the little bubble which is a pain when you're on the move.

Application simply indicates where the bikes are located and on what quantity which is great. My only problem with this app is the bike lane road overlay for Toronto is completely out of date and the developers of this app are not keeping it up to date.

Needs work!!! Needs a lot of work. We just want to be able to pick our favorite stations and quickly see how many bikes/docks are available. Period. Home screen should have 2 options. Pick a station or see status of favorite stations. Simple.

Inaccurate information Consistently displays inaccurate information regarding availability, especially during periods of peak usage.
