24-Hour & 3-Day Passes

Enjoy short bike trips anytime

Pick up 24-Hour and 3-Day Passes at any Pronto station kiosk and make sure you have your credit or debit card. Once you purchase a Pass, you’ll enter the bike number found on each bike’s chainstay, unlock the bike, and begin a ride trip. For subsequent trips you must swipe your credit or debit card at the kiosk again and re-enter a bike number of the bike you wish to ride.

You may also purchase a key fob that is good for your current purchase period and may be used for future purchases as well. If a key fob is purchased, you can bypass the kiosk and go straight to the dock on your next ride within the pass period. Key fobs purchased at the kiosk are $2.50.

Trips that are completed by Pass holders under 30 minutes are included in the Pass, but trips longer than 30 minutes incur usage fees. A trip begins when a bike is unlocked and ends when the bike is securely returned to any Pronto station.


24-Hour and 3-Day Pass holders can rent a helmet from any station for $2.

Simple to Use

Purchase at any kiosk.
Wherever you see a Pronto station, just walk up to the kiosk and follow the instructions on the screen. Your Pass gives you access to the system for a full 24-hours or 3-days, to fit your needs, with unlimited rides of up to 30 minutes each.

Made for everyone.
Pronto bikes are designed for comfort and ease. They’re made for Seattle city riding with seven speeds, a bell, a front rack, and front and rear LED lights powered by your pedaling.

Dock it and leave it.
No bike locks necessary. When you arrive at your destination, just re-dock your bike in a nearby Pronto station, wait for the green light, and be on your way.

Easy on Your Wallet

Unlimited rides.
By purchasing a 24-Hour or 3-Day Pass, you can take as many trips under 30 minutes as you like while your Pass is active. Overage fees apply to trips longer than 30 minutes.

Pricing that makes sense.
Taxis and bus fare can add up quickly. Skip the fees for each trip you take and take trips on your own schedule for just $8 a day, or $16 for three days.
