How It Works

Easy to use (and super-fun) transportation.

Coast is designed for short trips around town, typically between one and three miles. Checking out and returning bikes is a snap, so leave your car at home and use Coast as a last mile connector between transit and your destination. With 300+ bikes at 30+ stations in and around the city, Coast is always a convenient and healthy way to explore Tampa and St. Pete!
