Bay Area Bike Share
The Bay Area Metropolitan Transportation Commission approved $8.7 million in funding Wednesday morning to expand the Bay Area Bicycle Share program to the East Bay in 2015 despite delays in existing expansion plans caused by the bankruptcy of a key business.
The new Bay Area Bike Share system has only been in service for a week but seems to be a success as four times as many bicyclists have signed up to use the service as there are bikes available.
Bay Area commuters fed up with traffic clogged streets have a new option to get around the region.
Memberships for a bicycle share program went on sale Monday that will serve several Bay Area cities starting next month.
A bike-sharing pilot program is set to launch in the Bay Area starting in August with 700 bikes at docking stations in five cities.
