Richmond has announced a partnership with Gotcha Mobility that will soon bring 250 electric bicycles at 25 stations throughout the city that will be available for short-term use for a fee.

The city’s first e-bike network will launch later this year, according to a city statement.

According to Bike East Bay, details are “coming soon” on when and where in Richmond you can expect to see bike share bikes.”

“Bike share will enhance public access to destinations; expand mobility options for low income residents, especially with the provision of subsidized memberships for income-eligible residents; improve public health through increased physical activity and reduced greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants; and support community growth through safer, more vibrant streets,” the city statement said.
