How Breeze Bike Share Works


Breeze Bike Share (also known as Santa Monica Bike Share) is a public bike share program brought to you by the City of Santa Monica and built to empower personal mobility, heighten livability, augment existing transit, stimulate economic growth, and promote an active and healthy lifestyle for residents and visitors in Santa Monica.

Bike share is a network of stations with publicly available bicycles for short-term rental. With Breeze Bike Share, all you need is a membership to check out a bike and continue on your way. Bike share enables one-way, point-to-point trips, similar to a taxi or carshare.

Bike share complements other mobility options such as public transit and carshare, making them more convenient by providing first/last mile connectivity.

In short, here is how Breeze Bike Share works.

To end your trip, just return and lock the bike to a Breeze station, or a rack within 100 feet if the station you choose is full. You can lock to any other public bike rack for a small fee. Check the screen on the bike for return confirmation.
