The BIKE Stockton program will provide Stockton residents access to 100 electric-assist smart bikes at multiple stations across Stockton. The San Joaquin Regional Transit District (SJRTD) will work with Shared Mobility Inc., a nonprofit bike sharing/bike program provider, to manage the program.
When will the bicycles be ready for use?
The program launched on April 1, 2023. Residents can access the e-assist bikes by purchasing tickets on the BIKE Stockton app.
How many bicycles will there be?
Bike Stockton will provide one hundred (100) e-assist pedal bikes that will be distributed among approximately twelve (12) stations that will host five (5) to twelve (12) bikes per station.
Where will the bicycles be?
The area for the Stockton Mobility Collective includes a significant portion of Stockton, centered in Downtown Stockton and including major north-south transportation corridors connecting residents across the city to services, resources, shopping, schools, and jobs. Stations will be in historically underserved neighborhoods where mobility challenges are well documented and where there’s the greatest need. Because of that need, these are also neighborhoods with the greatest potential interest and participation in using the new services. We have identified some key locations that work well for a bikesharing system and continue to seek out station-hosting partnerships with the city of Stockton, public agencies, organizations, property owners and business owners.
Some key locations include:
- The University of the Pacific
- DeCarli Plaza
- San Joaquin Regional Transit District (SJRTD) Downtown Transit Center
- Miracle Mile
- Yosemite Street Village
How does it work?
- Download and sign up on the BIKE Stockton app.
- Unlock a bike by scanning the QR code on the handle bar using the app.
- Remove the lock tether and place it on the hook under the seat. Grab your helmet and enjoy the ride!
- Arrive at a BIKE Stockton rack and use the tether to secure your bike to the rack. Then, submit a photo to end your ride.
