Gotcha Bike Sharing with Bolt Mobility has closed. They have pulled the bikes and are considering a new direction for their service.
The City of St. Augustine and Flagler Health+ have teamed up with Bolt Mobility (Bolt) to launch the City's first e-bikeshare program called Gotcha. The program hosts 110 GPS-enabled e-bikes across approximately 13 hubs throughout St. Augustine. Hub locations are located across the City of St. Augustine, including historic downtown, West King Street, San Marco Avenue, Lincolnville, and Davis Shores.
Guests wishing to ride the bicycles must use the "Gotcha Powered by Bolt" app, available on the Apple App Store and Google Play store to locate bikes at the mobility hubs. A full map of all docking stations, pricing, and other useful information is available on the app. Riders may use a variety of payment options to ride on a daily, monthly, or annual basis.
The e-bikes are available to locals and visitors 18 and older and are similar to standard bicycles, but with an electric motor that provides a subtle boost. The bikes include a basket for shopping, a cable lock, and security features such as pedal-assisted acceleration, as well as a no-ride or park zone in Plaza de la Constitución and St. George Street.
Helmets, although not required, are strongly encouraged. Bolt has helmets available, free of charge, upon request for e-bike users via the app.
