Besides e-bikes stationed on the University of the Pacific campus in Stockton, Bike Stockton has decided to suspend all other service until further notice as of Sept. 4 due to escalating vandalism and theft.

This difficult, but necessary decision came after much thought and consideration about what was best for everyone involved, especially loyal Bike Stockton members. This is a pilot project and we knew there would be discovery and learning along the way. Bike Stockton is determined to redesign the program so that Stockton residents can take advantage of e-bikes as a transportation option. We appreciate your patience while we work to redesign the e-bike program. Please return to for updates.

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.

Be predictable

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.

    The QR code can be found on the e-bike in two places: in a small rectangular area between the handlebars, and on the lock over the rear wheel.
  • How do I lock the bike?

    Every bike has a cable lock that wraps around the bike rack at the Bike Stockton hubs and wheel lock that closes through the rear wheel. Wrap the cable lock around a bike rack. Insert the circular end of the cable into the wheel lock. Manually press the orange button on the bottom left corner of the wheel lock and push until securely locked. Use the Bike Stockton app to end your trip by submitting a photo of your locked bike. Be sure your photo clearly shows the cable secured to bike parking!

About e-bikes

  • What are pedal-assist e-bikes?

    Pedal-assist e-bikes ride just like any other bicycle. You get on and you pedal! The difference is that when you pedal, there is a small electric motor that adds an assist to each pedal stroke. This makes it possible to ride an e-bike to work without getting sweaty and allows riders to go further than they might otherwise ride -- providing greater access and ease of riding!
  • How does the motor work?

    The motor turns on automatically when you start pedaling.The motor stops running when you stop pedaling. The e-bikes stop providing power assist at approximately 16 mph.
  • How do I turn off an e-bike?

    The e-bike doesn’t need to be turned off. You just need to lock the e-bike to a Bike Stockton hub and take a photo to end the trip.
  • Do e-bikes go faster than regular pedal bikes?

    Because our e-bikes are capped at 16 miles per hour, our e-bikes travel at about the same speed as regular pedal bikes. You may notice however that it is easier to accelerate on e-bikes.
  • What do I do if my Bike Stockton bike breaks?

    Lock your Bike at the nearest hub and email to let us know. Our team provides regular maintenance to the fleet on a regular basis.
