bay area bike share

Bay Area Bike Share has launched over 300 bicycles in San Francisco and additional bicycles around the neighboring cities such as Mountain View and San Jose. The program has bikes that are available for rent 24/7 at 70 different locations.

The bicycles are held at different stations around the city and can be rented whenever you need them, once you’ve signed up for membership (which you can do online or at any station). The annual pass costs $88, the three-day pass is $22, and the daily pass is $9. The pass lets you use the bike for one 30-minute interval; additional fees are $4 for the first half hour the bike is late and $7 for every half hour after that (up to $150 per day). You can return the bike to any station. Failing to return or losing the bicycle will result in a $1,200 charge to your credit card.

Bike Share stations in San Francisco are mostly concentrated around downtown, with locations in SOMA, South Beach, Civic Center, Mid-Market, Rincon Hill, the Financial District, and along the Embarcadero. There are stations outside each of the downtown BART stations for easy access if you’re visiting from the East Bay, and two stations near Caltrain if you’re coming up from the Peninsula or South Bay.

San Franciscans love having lots of options for how to get around the city, and the Bay Area Bike Share program looks to be an interesting new choice. For more information about living in San Francisco or how to buy a home in the city, contact Sean Sullivan at 415.215.0554 or sean@climbsf.com.
