MONTREAL, Canada, June 15, 20178D Technologies, part of the Motivate family, is happy to announce the release of an updated version of our popular bike share application, Spotcycle v.46.0, for Android and iOS.

This update was created to make it easier for customers to plan routes. Our development team added a new set of icons to improve the visibility of bike share stations on the map, regardless of whether you are zoomed in or out on the map. When zoomed out, the “mini station” icons also take up less space on the screen than the standard icons, making it easier for customers to view route directions while simultaneously checking bike or dock availability.

These additional features enhance the app’s performance and complement the extensive features it already offers. Whether riders want to search for nearby local businesses, share their progress as they ride, add notes along the way or review and revise their routes for future reference, Spotcycle offers bike share users a convenient platform to do it all. Currently supporting bike share systems on four continents, the app is an asset to riders in bike share users worldwide.

8D and Motivate together continuously refine our technology to improve the bike share experience for our customers, our operators and the cities we serve.

The free updated application can be downloaded for iOS from the iTunes App Store and the Android update from the Google Play store.
