On November 11, 2014 Santa Monica’s Council unanimously approved CycleHop as the vendor to install and operate the bike share system. The program is set to launch in 2015 as a first step to what may someday become an integrated, regional bike share system. The 500 8-speed “smart” bicycles will be distributed at 65-75 hub locations citywide.

Santa Monica’s bike share system is publicly owned by the City and privately operated by CycleHop. Social Bicycles is supplying the bike share equipment for the program.
