Living the San Francisco Dream


Bay Area Bike Share - popular in San Francisco

Bay Area Bike Share is here, and joins over 200 other cities like London, Paris, Barcelona, New York City, Boston and Washington DC. Launched near the end of August, 2013, it has met much success, especially in San Francisco where plans are already in the works to expand. The regional system started with 700 bikes at 70 stations in 5 cities: San Francisco, Redwood City, Palo Alto, Mountain View and San Jose.

Bay Area Bike Share bikes

Bay Area Bike Share is designed for short-term bicycle use, like errand running or commuting to work, with stations connecting users to transit, businesses and other destinations.  The membership-based service offers 1-day, 3-day or annual memberships, with unlimited trips of 30 minutes or less available during the membership period. Charges incur for trips lasting longer than 30 minutes, and cyclists wishing longer rides are encouraged to use traditional bike rental sources.

Bay Area Bike Share stations in SF

As might be expected, most of the stations are located in San Francisco, clustered around the financial district, the waterfront, Civic Center, and the urban South of Market areas.

Lottie - What a great idea to be able ride a bike for a quick errand and then drop it off.  You've got to love living in San Francisco with alternative transportation sources like this!

That's very cool Lottie.  I saw those bikes the last time I was in the City.

Laura, Sharon, and Jim -- all I need to do now is get up my courage to share the road with cars which, my husband assures me, is easier to do than on the suburban Peninsula!
