In the fall of 2018, the city bike share program became part of a shared mobility pilot program.
The City of Santa Monica selected Bird, Jump, Lime and Lyft as the four operators to participate in the city's pilot program that builds upon the existing city bike share system, and expands Santa Monica’s commitment to be a truly multi-modal community that offers residents and visitors a variety of sustainable and convenient transportation options.
Each of the four selected operators began with an initial allocation of 750 devices each, totaling 1,000 e-bikes and 2,000 e-scooters.
Metro bike share stations are found in 13 locations in Venice and at two of their Expo Line stops: 17th Street/SMC and Downtown Santa Monica.
Santa Monica's 500 cBreeze bikes are still available, and are located at more than 88 hubs in Santa Monica and Venice, including all three Expo Stations.
There is a difference between the two systems. Here's what you need to know:
Metro Bikes are not compatible with the Breeze Bike System
Where you can ride and where you can lock
The systems have different fee structures
