Bay Wheels Bike Share Program

Bay Wheels brings affordable, accessible point-to-point bike sharing to Bay Area cities.


Bay Wheels is the Bay Area's regional bike share program serving Berkeley, Emeryville, Oakland, San Jose and San Francisco. Bay Wheels offers convenient, healthy, climate-friendly transportation around the Bay Area.

Bay Wheels offers over 7,000 bicycles (both traditional bikes and hybrid electric bikes) at 550 stations:

  • Pedal-powered bikes can be picked up and dropped off at Bay Wheels docking stations
  • E-bikes can use the docking stations or can be locked to a city bike rack

Bay Wheels is a partnership between MTC, the five local governments, and Motivate (a subsidiary of Lyft).

Affordable & Accessible Bikes

Programs for riders with low incomes and the option to pay with cash (instead of cards) put the Bay Area’s regional bike share program within reach for more people.
