Bay Area Bike Share
Supporters of Bay Area Bike Share are hoping to get expansion plans back in the fast lane after financial woes have created delays.
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.
