Find a bike in your city!

This app provides a simple interactive map displaying all bike share stations by city, their number of available bikes and free parking spots, and the geolocation. You can also save your favourites stations and see their status on the cover.

500+ cities in 50+ countries, check in the app if yours is there ;)

Send me a message to report bugs or ask for new cities!

By default, BikeMe only show cities where open data is available (or at least clean data). If your city doesn't provide open data (or if I haven't included it in the app yet), you have the option to use the CityBikes data. If your city is available in both data sets, it's better to use the "Official data" though, since the data is fetched directly from the bike provider.

(Versions 0.5-2 and above will only work on Sailfish OS 2.0.5 and above.)

Still do not work on my Jolla. The same error as above.

Sthocs's picture

Hello, if you have the same error than above, it means that you are still trying to install v0.5-1. You need to install the version recompiled for Sailfish 2.0.5: v0.5-2

The most important app in my phone, I use it everyday

Thank you so much for the fast answer ;)

Sthocs's picture

I'm very happy to read that :)

Any plans to submit this app to jolla harbour?

Great app!

Sthocs's picture

Hi, thanks for the comment it's appreciated!
I can't publish the app in Harbour as it's using Qt Location to display the map, which only became stable in Qt 5.5, and Sailfish is stuck on Qt 5.2. But I've read that they are working on the migration to Qt 5.6. I will submit it as soon as I'm allowed to!

Hi there!

Could you check please parser for Moscow (Velobike.ru). It seems that event "Station offline" is not parsed correctly. Just I now I cheked again: native app shows that station is offline but BikeMe shows the number of the bikes  available.

 

Thank you in advance.

Sthocs's picture

Hi,
I've checked a few stations and I see the same numbers on BikeMe and on the velobike.ru website. Which stations seems to not work for you?
Maybe their mobile application is using a different API?
 

subeditor's picture

Hi!

This relates not to exact station but to stations that are down at the moment.

Right now station 0465 seems to be down according to http://velobike.ru, but right now BikeMe shows that 6 bikes are available at station 0465.

For testing you can just scroll map at http://velobike.ru, find the station with NA icon and check what your app shows.

Ok I see, I need to rely on the "IsLocked" flag in the Velobike API. Thanks for the report, I'll try to update that next week.

Many thanks!

Great app!

But somehow it allows only digits for Favorites name.

Sthocs's picture

Thanks.
Yes, actually you need to enter the ID of the station.
The user-friendly way to add a favourite is to go on the map, click on a station and then on the little heart. You'll arrive on the favourites page with the ID already filled-in. I need to change that, but it does the job for now.

By the way, how did you manage to solve the issue with the missing osm rpm? I saw someone having the issue on TJC (maybe you), but didn't have time to have a look.

subeditor's picture

Yes, that was me. I updated SFOS and error gone.

carmenluci's picture

Thank you for the app, it's excellent!!

It would be nice if you add an option in Settings to open the app in "Favorites" or "Interactive Map"page directly.

On the other hand, are you thinking about adding other languages to the app? You can count on me for Spanish translations ;)

Sthocs's picture

Glad you like it :)
Well, that's two things I could certainely do when I have some time! (thank you for proposing to help!)

Nice app, thank you very much!
It would be amazing if you could also add Stadtrad Hamburg (http://stadtrad.hamburg.de/kundenbuchung/) to the list!
Thanks!
Chris

Hey ! Sorry for the very late reply. Just to let you know, I had a look and they doesn't provide a clean API unfortunately.
I'll see what is possible from the website if I have time, but otherwise I've seen that NextBike, which has a better API, has also a contract in Hamburg. Does it means you have 2 bike providers in Hamburg?

Great app!

Am using it in London, thanks for including. Congratulations on a really nice piece of software!

update: 28/8/15 London does not seem to be working anymore v0.4.1-1  (Im using OS 1.1.6.27)

Oops, OpenRepos doesn't notify me in case of updates on comments :-/
So I'm sorry for the delay, the URL had been redirected and I hadn't implemented URL redirections. It's done now. Hope you'll use the app again!
 

Sthocs's picture

Thanks for letting me know, I appreciate to see that the new cities are being used! I'll try to continue adding more when I have time.

Nice worrk, apriciated ,  but sadly my country as one of the most bike using ones is not  there, im  hoping  it  will be soon,   greetings from the Netherlands.

Sthocs's picture

Hi. Thanks. What is your city and the company that provides the Bikes? Do they expose an API to access the data? I originally hadn't planned to add more providers than JCDecaux, but if some other services have similar APIs, it would be possible to add them.

No update

Too bad

Sthocs's picture

Hello. Indeed I did not have much time and the application does the job for my usage without major issues.
If I know people are using it, it will motivate me to find time to work on it. But what feature would you like to have? I have some in mind like being able to see the status of all stations directly on the map, or start the application directly in the favourites view. Tell me!

freedent's picture

After utilisation I don't know.

Or new design? If you have free time :)

Perfect application for Lyon !
