Folks, new transportation that is healthy, fun and very GREEN is coming to San Francisco. The Bay Area Bike Share! How does it work? You pay a small fee (choose between a day pass, three day pass or annual pass) which allows you to use one of a fleet of cool new bikes that are stored at certain stations throughout the city.
The idea behind this is to promote a healthy and green affordable transportation system. Take a ride with your friends and family for fun or use them to commute. As of right now the stations are planned for the Marina, SOMA, all along the Financial Distract, China Town and North Beach.
More From the Bay Area Bike Share Website
The Bay Area Bike Share is the region’s bike sharing system with 700 bikes and 70 stations across the region launching in August 2013, with locations in San Francisco, Redwood City, Mountain View, Palo Alto, and San Jose. Intended to provide Bay Area residents and visitors with an additional transportation option for getting around the region, the Bay Area Bike Share is fun, easy, and affordable. A bike sharing system consists of a fleet of specially designed, heavy-duty, very durable bikes that are locked into a network of docking stations located throughout a region. Bay Area bikes can be rented from and returned to any station in the system, creating an efficient network with many possible combinations of start and end points.With hundreds of bikes at stations along the peninsula, the system will be available for use 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The station network will provide twice as many docking points as bicycles, assuring that an available dock to return your bike is always nearby.
