All users must download the Bleeperbike App on their Smart phone. This allows them to become members of the service, to locate the bikes and to unlock nearby bikes by scanning the QR code on each bike using their smart phone. Once you arrive at your destination, you can park at any cycle parking stand near your destination and lock it manually. This removes the need to develop and construct expensive and often inconvenient docking stations associated with traditional bike share schemes.
