The BIKE Stockton program provides Stockton residents access to 100 electric-assist smart bikes at multiple stations across Stockton. The locations will be based on cost, visibility, and community input. The San Joaquin Regional Transit District (SJRTD) will work with Mobility Development Foundation, a nonprofit bike sharing/bike program provider, and Shared Mobility Inc., a nonprofit bike sharing operator, to manage the program.
When will the bicycles be ready for use?
The full program launch was in April 2023. Residents are able to ride the e-assist bikes and can purchase tickets on the App Store or Google Play.
How many bicycles will there be?
Bike Stockton aims to provide a 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 primarily be located 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, business owners, and residents.
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
