Bike share is a region-wide program that allows the public to rent bicycles docked at self-service stations. You can access the bikes with a day pass or annual membership. Pick them up at one station and drop them off at another. Bike share serves both locals and visitors; a fun and healthy way to reach your destination. Bike share complements other forms of public transit and supports local businesses. Bike share is rolling in 500 cities worldwide with over 500,000 bikes. By the end of next year, 75 cities in North America will have a program, including our region! Coast Bike Share is Tampa’s community Bike Share Program. Residents and visitors will have access to 300 public bicycles distributed throughout downtown, Ybor City, and Hyde Park. Use the bikes to commute to work, do errands, visit friends, or just for fun! Bike Share will enhance transportation options by making it possible to quickly access a public bicycle near places of employment, tourist destinations, educational institutions, and transit stops. The program seeks to encourage bicycle usage as an environmentally-friendly and congestion reducing transportation option.
