The City of Santa Cruz, in partnership with Jump Bikes, introduced bike share to Santa Cruz in May 2018. Bike share provides affordable short-term bike rentals for quick trips within City limits and brings a new transportation option to the community. Why use a Jump bike rather than ride your own? Bike share is a great option if you don’t own your own bike, don’t want to maintain a bike, are worried about theft, or if you simply want the convenience of having a bike whenever you need one.
Each of the 250 JUMP bikes features electric assist, which provides a boost when you pedal and makes bike share a great option for getting up the hills of Santa Cruz. Find out more about the City of Santa Cruz’s partnership with Jump Bikes, including bike locations, rates, frequently asked questions, and bike safety tips, on the City’s Bike Share Santa Cruz webpage.
