Santa Monica leads again! Today we celebrate the launch of the new shared hybrid ebikes and expanded mobility options in Santa Monica allowing more people access to healthy active mobility options beyond just driving a car. Today new Lyft ebikes launch in Santa Monica, available at 80 Breeze Stations.
The Lyft hybrid ebike comes with a cable to lock to any Breeze station for free. You can also lock to a public bike rack within the West Los Angeles service area for an extra $1.
At launch pricing: Ebikes are now available in the Lyft app, starting at just $1 to unlock + $0.34/min.* Whether you’re going that first mile or that last mile, ebikes are a fun, affordable way to get around town.
Lyft ebikes are available within the city of Santa Monica (the pink region) and can be ridden anywhere within the West Los Angeles service area (the purple region). Note that pedal assist won’t function outside these service areas or in the red regions visible in-app. Please do not leave parked ebikes outside the purple region, as you will be fined.
*Taxes and fees may apply. For more info, see FAQs.
