Mission:  Bikestation seeks to improve the quality of life in urban communities through the development and operation of bike-transit centers and related infrastructure.

Vision:  We envision communities where bicycling is an integral part of the transportation system resulting in cleaner air, safer streets and healthier living.

Values:  We value innovative, creative, and efficient solutions to addressing the transportation inequities in our communities.

We're proud to be a Certified B Corporation When you support a Certified B Corporation, you're supporting a better way to do business.  Certified B Corporations meet rigorous, independent standards of social and environmental performance.  They are creating greater economic opportunity, strengthening local communities, and preserving the environment.

Modeled after European and Japanese examples, Bikestation Long Beach was the first facility of its kind to open in the U.S. in March of 1996. Bikestation Palo Alto and Bikestation Berkeley opened in 1999; Bikestation Seattle opened in May 2003. The newest Bikestation, Santa Barbara, opened on May 1st of 2007.

Bikestation serves as an information-clearinghouse and support system to the individual operators that are responsible for the day-to-day operations of each facility. Local operators vary per location and consist of non-profit, for-profit and advocacy organizations.

Bikestation has worked with a number of agencies and organizations in the planning, development and implementation of Bike-transit related projects. While each facility is sponsored by various agencies, acknowledged on our sponsors pages, other project partners have included the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority, Flexcar, City of Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency, City of Pittsburgh, Regional Transit District of the City and County of Denver, Puget Sound Regional Council, City of Cambridge, MA, South Coast Air Quality Management District, and the Cities of Santa Monica, Norwalk, Pasadena, North Hollywood and Santa Barbara.
