Santa Monica rolls out new app-based, bike-sharing program

By | November 12, 2015

Bike-share arrived on the East Coast and in Europe several years ago, and today, Los Angeles County joins in with its own system.


The launch of Santa Monica’s system, Breeze Bikeshare, will provide 500 green bicycles for rent at 75 kiosks in Santa Monica and four kiosks in neighboring Venice.

The system is designed for short, point-to-point trips rather than an all-day rental. Users will rent a bicycle from a Breeze kiosk, or a nearby bicycle rack, hop on and leave the bike near their destination.
