Electric bike and car sharing programs preparing to launch in Stockton


Getting around Stockton may soon become easier for residents in low-income neighborhoods.

The San Joaquin Council of Governments’ Stockton Mobility Collective is aimed at improving transportation options for residents who are looking for clean, affordable ways to travel to jobs, schools, health care, grocery stores and other key destinations.

“Not only are we thinking about this from the mobility perspective, but the other key aspect of the Stockton Mobility Collective is to think about mobility from an equity lens,” senior regional planner Christine Corrales said. “How are we improving mobility, not just for everyone, but especially for those who don’t have access to a car in Stockton?”

The Stockton Mobility Collective is funded by a $7.4 million grant from the Sustainable Transportation Equity Project. The grant was awarded to the San Joaquin Council of Governments in November 2020 by the Air Resources Board.
