Bye-Bye, DecoBike!

Four PB DecoBike stations will be removed as part of a refocusing on increasing the use of bike sharing for transit connectivity and short trips, in support of the City’s climate action and mobility hub efforts.

  • 4500 Ocean Blvd. (Boardwalk)
  • 780 Thomas Ave. (Thomas & Mission)
  • 760 Grand Ave. (PB Lifeguard Station)
  • 760 Pacific Beach Drive (at Mission Blvd.)
