Login with a Travel Card

Contactless travel cards used for public transportation, or other forms of access cards, can be associated with Gobike accounts. By using an access card, Users can login to an account without having to enter their user ID and password on the Gobike Tablet.

Two Navigation View Options

Once a User selects a destination on the Gobike Tablet they can be guided to their destination by either a map showing a suggested route, or by simple turn-by-turn icons. Users choose the option of their preference and can easily change between views.

Find an Address

Users can look up a desired address on the Gobike Tablet, and then be guided from their current location to the address.

Points of Interest

Points of interest typically include attractions, restaurants, shopping destinations, event locations, and major landmarks. Users are presented with a list of points of interest and can choose to read information about each item and also be guided to these locations. Third-party database information can be used to generate this content in the Gobike system, such as information provided by a city’s tourism organization.

Travel Planner

Public transportation information can be integrated into the Gobike Tablet interface. Users are provided with a list of the closest public transportation options relative to their current location. When an option is selected, such as a bus stop, information can be provided about schedules, so that Users can easily combine a bicycle trip with public transportation.

Using the Digital Lock

Users manage the digital lock on each Gobike bicycle through the Tablet. The locking sequence is initiated on the tablet, and the digital lock is opened in the same way that a User would log in on a bike that is parked in a docking point.
