The viaCycle API provides access to viacycle data such as locations,
number of available bikes and other data for developers.
Authentication / Authorization
An Api Key is required for access. We don’t have an automated form yet, so
please send us an email and we will send you the key
(most likely in a few hours).
- email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- App Name (e.g. viaCycle@GT Mobile)
- Programmatic Name (e.g. viacycle-gt-mobile)
- Intended Platform
Once you have the Key, open endpoints (login not required) can be accessed by
sending the Api Key as the AuthKey header.
A User Token is required for closed endpoints (login required).
User tokens are issued per user per app. A token is obtained by making an
API call to the endpoint /token/, with the following POST parameters:
Closed endpoints require the User Token to be sent as a header.
