Do I have to block a FLEX vehicle in advance to access one I find on the street?
Not at all. If the vehicle is available, you will be able to access it (see “How do I start my trip with a vehicle I blocked, or spotted on the street?”).
You will know if the vehicle is available by looking at the card reader:
- a green flashing LED, the car is available
- a red flashing LED, the car is already being used by another member
- both green and red LEDs flashing, the car has been blocked for use by another member (that member could be you, if you already blocked the car)
