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.

Beach area DecoBike stations have been highly controversial because they compete with established local bike rental businesses.

Stations to be removed, beginning September 5, are:

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

15 total stations are being removed, including Mission Beach locations.

Police/Community Relations Meeting is August 28

The Mayor’s “Citizens’ Advisory Board on Police/Community Relations” meeting is Monday, August 28th, at the Pacific Beach Library from 6pm-7:30pm. It’s open to the public. Attendees can speak on issues such as how thefts, shortage of police officers, drug dealing/usage, recent attacks on women, aggressive transients, long dispatch wait times and long police response times are negatively impacting PB; and urge the City to hire more officers and make compensation programs more competitive.  SDPD has many open positions because so many officers leave each year for better paying positions elsewhere.
