Pay as you ride
Anyone with a Bay Wheels membership will have access to discounted ebike prices. Annual and monthly members who choose an ebike will pay $0.15 per minute with no unlock fee, and non-members will pay $0.20 per minute with a $2 unlock fee. These fees help cover the additional costs of batteries and charging.
If an ebike is the only option at a station, these per-minute fees will be waived.
Bike Share for All members will pay a discounted rate of $0.05 per minute for ebike trips, with all per-minute fees capped at $1.
For annual and monthly members, the per-minute ebike charges are capped at $2 for rides that start or end in neighborhoods currently less connected to transit (see map below).

Dock ebikes at any Bay Wheels station for free.
Parking an ebike at a bike rack, not docked at a station, will cost $2.
This fee will be waived if the bike is parked near a station with no empty docks available, or locked to a bike rack in part of the service area without stations (as shown below).
Ebike parking violations
Parking violations — including locking the ebike to itself, private property, trees, or any other structures as well as blocking pathways, sidewalks, or ramps — incur a $25 fee. You’ll be charged a $25 fee for parking your ebike outside of the service area.
Extra Time Fees
If you keep a bike out longer than the allowed time, members will have an extra charge of $2 for each additional 15 minutes. Non-members will be charged $3.
