TAM and SCTA received a grant from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission through the Bike Share Capital Program. The goal of this grant program is to expand bicycle access and facilitate multimodal transportation in connection with transit and other regional bike share operators. The grant is intended to support capital purchases or leases, and robust public outreach to ensure successful and equitable system access and usage.

The planned system is expected to consist of 300 or more electric bikes that will use the latest generation of bike share technology and is being developed through a contract with Bolt Mobility (Bolt).

There are expected to be 150 bikes in Marin County and 150 bikes in Sonoma County at or around SMART stations in the following cities: City of Santa Rosa, City of Rohnert Park, City of Cotati, City of Petaluma, City of Novato, City of San Rafael, City of Larkspur. The goal is to help complete the “last mile” between SMART stations and work and shopping locations.

SCTA and TAM staff are working with Bolt on a roll-out plan that includes a minimum of 300 GPS-enabled e-bikes and three years of operations. Riders will be able to access the bikes at hubs around SMART stations by using a smart phone app. The bikes will feature RFID card readers that are compatible with Clipper® cards to make sure the system is accessible for riders without smart phones. The vision of the program is to provide a new, innovative and environmentally friendly solution for people to get to and from SMART stations and around town.

El sistema piloto inicial de bicicletas compartidas estará a lo largo del corredor del tren SMART en Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park, Cotati, Petaluma, Novato, San Rafael y Larkspur.  Si se sugieren lugares de estacionamiento de bicicletas más allá de estas ciudades o de los límites del sistema inicial, se tomarán en cuenta para la expansión potencial futura del programa piloto de bicicletas compartidas.

Detalles adicionales del programa

  • Los pasajeros podrán acceder a las bicicletas en los centros de movilidad en las estaciones del tren SMART y cerca de sus destinos, usando una aplicación de smart phone.
  • La perspectiva del programa es proveer una solución nueva, innovadora y ambientalmente amigable, para que la gente pueda llegar y salir de las estaciones del SMART en su ciudad.
  • La Autoridad del Transporte del Condado de Sonoma (SCTA) y la Autoridad del Transporte de Marín (TAM) están trabajando junto con las ciudades y con Bolt Mobility, el operador de las bicicletas compartidas, para concluir con los detalles y lanzar el sistema de bicicletas compartidas en 2021.
  • Este programa piloto recibe fondos de la Metropolitan Transportation Commission para proveer bicicletas compartidas en las estaciones del SMART y sus alrededores en las ciudades de Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park, Cotati, Petaluma, Novato, San Rafael y Larkspur.
