The Blue Bikes Bike Share program in New Orleans is a partnership between the City of New Orleans and Social Bicycles, and is sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana.
All around the city, you’ll notice racks of blue bikes – and they’re a great way to get around the city. The bikes are affordable, align with the New Orleans transit system, and allow visitors and locals to get around the city in a new way!
You can sign up for Blue Bikes via the official website or the Blue Bikes New Orleans mobile app. Enter your account number and 4-digit PIN on the keypad on the bike of your choice to unlock it, and head on your way! To lock the bike, simply take the U-lock from the holster and lock it to a Blue Bikes rack.
You can reserve a bike ahead of time via the app or website.
Blue Bikes are installed all around the city, with locations ranging from Jackson Avenue in the Garden District all the way to St. Roch near the Bywater. Use the map on the Blue Bikes official site to find mapped out locations of bike hubs.
You can purchase a blue bike membership for $8/hour (prorated to the minute) or $15/month.
