Coast Bike Share’s expansion to St. Petersburg will feature 300 bikes, owned by the City, across what is anticipated to be 30 stations, doubling its current footprint. St. Petersburg continues its successful active transportation programs and increases urban mobility with Bike Share by making bicycles readily available for short to medium trips.

The program will build on the City’s extensive network of approximately 115 miles of bicycle facilities citywide and the Healthy St. Pete Initiative that encourages residents and visitors to EAT, PLAY, SHOP and LIVE healthier. With hundreds of bikes around town, it’s transit at your speed, a healthy, fun and affordable way to breeze around town.

The Coast program is managed by Cyclehop, LLC a bike share consulting and operations company with 20 years of experience in the cycling industry. To find out more information or to join, please visit CoastBikeShare.com.
