THE BEST WAY TO GET AROUND SAN ANTONIO
Bike sharing is an innovative approach to urban mobility, combining the convenience and flexibility of a bicycle with the accessibility of public transportation. Public bike share systems offer people another transportation choice, one that is both healthy and fun. San Antonio Bike Share operates SWell Cycle which consists of 500+ bicycles provided at a network of 60+ stations located at key destinations within the urban core of the city and along the Museum and Mission Reach bike paths. Bikes are available on-demand, providing residents and visitors with quick and easy access to some of San Antonio’s most popular destinations.
San Antonio Bike Share (SABS), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, relies on sponsorships and individual donations as well as membership fees and is supplemented with government and non-government grants. Our mission is aligned with several public interests including transportation, environmental stewardship, and quality of life improvements. SABS is unique in that it serves both as a convenient option to visit tourist attractions in San Antonio and as an alternative and healthy method of transportation for residents and visitors. The many benefits of bike sharing includes improved individual and community health, economic development through green jobs and improved access to businesses and environmental benefits such as reduced vehicle emissions.

Think of bike share as a bike when you need it and dock it when you don’t. It’s just like a parking lot. You park your car, go in for your errand or meeting, then come back to your car and go. Just insert "bike share" for your car and you’ve got it! The dock is the parking lot! And your errands generally take less than an hour so now you can use bike share for all your errands around downtown!
