The “Mejor en bici” service is now available to tourists in Buenos Aires as well as locals. Renting a bike is a great way to see Buenos Aires, but up until now the service was only available with local identification.
Tourists can now rent bicycles by presenting their original passport, a copy of their passport, the name and address of where they’re staying, a local phone number and signing the affidavit agreeing to the terms and conditions. They’ll take your picture and let you pick a PIN and then off you go.
The bicycle rental service is completely free and available from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 3pm on Saturday. You can find a list of bicycle stations and the routes here.
