B-Cards are the special smartcards we’ve chosen for our BikeShare implementation. Your B-Card is what you’ll use to check a bike out at any BikeShare station on campus.
The B-cards contain an RFID chip uniquely associated with your account. When you use your B-card at a BikeShare station, the bike’s computer will associate your account with the bike you’re checking out. When you return the bike, the computer updates your account to show that the bike is back at a station, and also uploads data from your ride.
