Lattis-a better bike rental system
Local Hub Bicycle Company is excited to announce the addition of another bike rental station at The Lot . This bike rental station has been in the works for while, but we were waiting for the technology to operate a remote location with no staff to become available. Meet Lattis, a smarter bike lock. It’s an app based solar powered, keyless lock, with GPS technology. It’s quite genius actually, and easy to use. Simply download the Lattis app from the iTunes or Google Play store. Turn on your bluetooth and location service on your phone. Register a new user account or log in to an existing account. Find a ride to rent (you need to be within a 3 mile radius of a bike). Select the bike you’d like to rent. They all have funny animal names on stickers on the bikes. The app automatically reserves a bike for 15 minutes in case you aren’t next to it. Once the app and the lock are connected, click the blue box that says start ride. A little lock in a blue circle will pop up on the bottom left of the screen. Press it to unlock the lock. Store the lock in the basket of the bike or lock it into the back rack. Once the lock is in the correct storage place, press the lock in the blue box again to lock it. Now, you are ready to ride. You can take the bike and lock it as many times as you please. When you are done with your ride, bring the bike back to the rental location where you picked it up from and lock it to the bike rack and click End Ride. This will complete your rental.
We have also updated our rental station at Uptown Urban Market with the new Lattis locks, making rentals available 24 hours a day. Bicycle rentals at The Lot and Uptown Urban Market will be FREE until August 20th. Go rent a nice bike and tour Dallas the best way, on 2 wheels.
