Bike & Scooter Share

Bike and scooter share make short, car-free trips a breeze!

City Council approved the Scooter Share Pilot Program in December 2021. Following a competitive application process, the City has awarded Bird Rides, Inc. a one-year pilot program permit. Bird is expected to begin operations Friday, July 1, 2022. Please see the Scooter Share section below for more information about how to access Bird scooters or report issues.

Bike share (operated by Bolt Mobility) is expected to launch in several Sonoma and Marin County cities, including Santa Rosa, sometime in 2022. For more information about the Sonoma-Marin Bike Share Pilot, visit Sonoma County Transportation Authority's website.

The City's Shared Scooter Pilot Program Permit Conditions outline requirements that the operator must meet in order to ensure scooters do not negatively impact safety and accessibility for other users of the public right-of-way or private property owners.

Prospective operators: please note the City's Shared Scooter Pilot Program Permit Application is now closed.
