Grand return to Spotcycle for BCycle bike share systems

We’re glad to announce that we’ve brought BCycle systems back to Spotcycle!

Spotcycle suspends support for B-Cycle bike share schemes for the time being

A little while back, we mentioned that we were trying to get our B-Cycle data feed available again to Spotcycle users. We have been unable to reach an agreement with B-Cycle and unfortunately needed to suspend support for B-Cycle bike share schemes for the time being. We felt that B-Cycle were moving in a direction we did not feel was in the spirit of benefiting all parties involved. As an unfortunate consequence, B-Cycle Spotcycle users are the ones caught in the middle. Rather than continuing to provide stale data to our B-Cycle supporters, we felt it best to suspend support for these schemes until arrangements can be made with the service ...

Working on restoring B-Cycle data to Spotcycle

We’d like to offer our sincerest apologies to our B-Cycle bike share users while we are working out the temporary kinks with the data. We’re actively working with the folks at B-Cycle to get their data back up and running on Spotcycle so please bear with us while we do. We want to make sure our B-Cycle bike share users are not left in the lurch for any extended length of time. Meanwhile, follow us on Twitter @Spotcycle to stay in the loop.
