DECOBIKE recently installed its first bike-sharing station on E Street at Sixth Avenue in San Diego. The station has 15 bicycles. Bicycle-sharing programs have increased in popularity in major U.S. cities as well as on a global scale in the last few years; however, this is the first program in San Diego. DECOBIKE works in conjunction with the city of San Diego and plans to launch 1,809 locations across downtown, beach areas and San Ysidro.
How It Works
Grab your credit card and head over to any of the bike stations. Rent your bike, ride it for the amount of time you bought, and then drop it off at any location (doesn’t have to be the pickup location). Choose from two rental options: hourly or membership. The hourly version lets you keep the bike for the duration of the rental period. The membership option lets you make unlimited rides on a monthly basis. Membership is further divided by unlimited 30-minute rides or unlimited 60-minute rides. Timing is recorded each time a bike is docked at a rental station. If your bike is not returned within the time limit, additional usage fees apply.
• ½ hour: $5
• 1 hour: $7
• 2 hours: $12
• 30-minute unlimited $99 annually or $20 monthly
• 60-minute unlimited $199 annually or $30 monthly
