How it works
Download the Bike Stockton app to your mobile device and choose your pass to get started.
Scan the QR code on the handle bar using the app to unlock the bike.
Remove the lock tether and place it on the hook under the seat. Grab your helmet and enjoy the ride!
Roll your bike to a bike rack and use the tether to secure your bike to the rack. ALWAYS lock the bike with the cable to a Bike Stockton rack, an appropriate public bike parking place. Then, submit a photo to end your ride.

Parking Zones and Fees
All bikes must be parked upright, with the cable lock looped around a bike rack/fixed street object, and not obstructing travel on sidewalks/roadways. Never park our bikes on private property.
Bike Stockton Hubs
Pick up a Bike Stockton bike from any one of our racks and park them here at no extra cost! You can locate all Bike Stockton hubs in our app.
Public Bike Racks
Park at any public bike rack within the service area for only $5.00. We’ll bring the bike back to a hub for you.
Who we are
At Bike Stockton, we’re committed to operating an affordable program that promotes greater transportation access, and promotes health in Stockton by supporting recreation and exercise through bicycling. Bike’s fleet is composed of pedal-assist e-bikes that give you a gentle boost as you’re pedaling, allowing you to roll with ease on a bicycle built for you.
Bike Stockton is a program offered through Shared Mobility Inc. Shared Mobility Inc is a nonprofit that advances innovative transportation services that focus on a shared model.
Bike Stockton is brought to you by the San Joaquin Regional Transit District as part of San Joaquin Council of Government’s (SJCOG) Stockton Mobility Collective.
The Stockton Mobility Collective is funded by a Sustainable Transportation Equity Project (STEP) Implementation Grant from the California Air Resources Board (CARB). The project is part of California Climate Investments (CCI), a statewide initiative that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment — particularly in disadvantaged communities. Moving California, part of CCI, focuses on increasing education and awareness of clean transportation options, while emphasizing program successes and providing guidance on how California’s communities and residents can both benefit and access clean transportation opportunities.
Follow the rules
Yield to pedestrians. Stop at all red lights and stop signs. Ride in the direction of traffic. Use the grip bell to signal your presence. Do not wear more than one earphone while riding. Obey traffic laws at all times.
Plan a sensible route
Plan your route before you ride to follow the safest route to your destination. You can use our app to find your way to a bike you’ve reserved or to a hub when you want to end your ride.
Do a pre-ride check
Adjust the seat height; try the grip bell; and if you’re riding at night, check that the front and rear lights are illuminated.
Make it easy for the traffic around you. Don’t make unexpected turns that put yourself and others in danger. Ride at a steady pace so other vehicles can anticipate your movement.
Wear a helmet
Whenever you ride, wear a helmet. Always buckle the strap. Replace your helmet after any crash and whenever you see signs of damage.
Tips for turns
Use hand signals to let drivers and other cyclists know your intention to turn or to stop. Don’t turn or change lanes without knowing the position of the cars and bikes around you.
