Bike & Scooter Share
Bike and scooter share make short, car-free trips a breeze!
City Council approved a scooter share pilot program in December 2021. Following a competitive application process, the City has awarded Bird Rides, Inc. a one year pilot program permit. Bird is expected to begin operations in June 2022. More information about rentals, pricing, low-income discounts, adaptive devices, and more will be added to this page prior to the start of operations.
Bike share (operated by Bolt Mobility) is expected to launch in several Sonoma and Marin County cities, including Santa Rosa, in 2022. For more information about the Sonoma-Marin Bike Share Pilot, visit Sonoma County Transportation Authority's website.
The City's Shared Scooter Pilot Program Permit Application is now closed.
- What is bike/scooter share?
Bikes and scooters are distributed throughout the City, available to rent for short, point-to-point trips, and meant to be used by several different people per day. The bikes and scooters are owned and maintained by a private operator who must be permitted to operate within Santa Rosa.
- How do I rent a bike/scooter? How do I end my trip?
- What is Santa Rosa doing to ensure shared bikes/scooters don’t impede pedestrian access and clutter sidewalks?
- What do I do if I see a shared bike/scooter that has been mis-parked, vandalized, or stolen?
Please make note of the location and ID number printed on the device, then call the appropriate operator. Operators' contact information will be listed on this page once available.
- Are there any places where shared bikes and scooters cannot be ridden?
- How fast are people allowed to go on the bikes/scooters?
Santa Rosa was recognized as a "Silver" level Bicycle-Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists in 2019.
