Recharge bikes and get Uber Cash

How it works

You can spot bikes that are eligible for dropoff on the map—just look for the yellow gift icon.

After reserving a bike, you can choose a dropoff spot nearby — just look for the yellow arrows, and navigate there using the app. Some of these yellow arrows will indicate a charging station, others will just be a virtual dropoff spot.

Park and lock your bike in the dropoff area. Your ride to the dropoff spot will be free, and you’ll automatically get Uber Cash for your help.*

As JUMP electric bikes continue to become more popular around Austin, we’re excited about growing our network of charging stations. Thanks for riding with JUMP and have fun cruising around Austin.

*Uber Cash amount shown in app. Uber Cash will be received if the JUMP bike is parked at a dropoff area marked by a yellow arrow on the Uber app map. It can take up to 5 business days to see the added balance reflected in your Uber Cash account—you will be notified as soon as it is updated. See Uber Cash Terms for details.
