Last week, Santa Monica launched LA County's first public bike share. The 500-cycle Breeze Bike Share program has 75 stations in Santa Monica as well as four in Venice, and since the roll-out, it looks like people from all over are taking to the new system. Unlocking the bike is as simple and inputting your personal code, and bikes can be returned to any of the Breeze Bikes kiosks when you're done riding, says KPCC. So far, folks have used the bikes for everything from warming up before going on a jog to running errands while their car's in the shop.
The Santa Monica bike share program got one thing right: key pads on each bike to avoid kiosk queues. And Metro transfers. Ok, 2 things.— Sean Stoner (@maslowbeer) November 16, 2015
another @BreezeBikeShare plus: biking around town for errands, then hopping in a friend's car w/out worrying about where to put your bike.— joni (@ayogist) November 14, 2015
I'm excited for Santa Monica's new bike-share program! I'm seeing docks of bicycles popping up everywhere.— Frank Fox (@frankthefox) November 15, 2015
