Bay Area Bike Share

You don’t always need four wheels to run errands, have fun or sightsee. Use a bike!

Our Bay Area Bike Share system comes equipped with 700 bikes and 70 stations in San Francisco, Redwood City, Mountain View, Palo Alto and San Jose.

With hundreds of bikes at stations along the peninsula, the system is available for use 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The station network provides twice as many docking points as bicycles, assuring that an available dock to return your bike is always nearby.

It’s incredibly easy to become a member. Find out how it works, see pictures of the bikes and more.

The system will expand to 7,000 bikes by 2017 — and bring bike share for the first time to Oakland, Berkeley and Emeryville!

MTC provided funding for Bay Area Bike Share’s initial pilot phase, and management of the program is shifting to MTC from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.

Other partners include the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, SamTrans, Caltrain, the County of San Mateo, the San Mateo County Transportation Authority, the city of Redwood City and the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority.
