In 2007 Bikestation partnered with the City of Santa Barbara to design, build, and manage a bike transit center to make bicycling downtown more convenient, safe and accessible. If you have never seen a Bikestation — these places are pretty impressive — locations offer indoor secure digital storage for bikes, a service area for repairs, clean bathrooms with showers and lockers, and more — kind of like a "mini bike spa".
Located inside the Granada Garage parking structure, Bikestation Santa Barbara provides protected bike parking 24/7 in convenient walking distance to State Street, the Downtown-Waterfront Shuttle, the MTD transit facility and the Amtrak Station.
The facility houses 78 bicycle racks, a shower and unisex bathroom, lockers, tools, work stand, an air compressor and vending machine with bicycle accessories for purchase. Access is limited to members and users can choose from a range of membership options ranging from daily ($1/park) to monthly ($12/mo) or annual plans ($96/yr).
Inside Santa Barbara is Santa Barbara's only news magazine show that covers the City's most significant issues, projects, and events. The award-winning show is produced by City TV Channel 18 and hosted by Dominique Blocker.
