Whew! It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since we first launched Bay Area Bike Share. We went live on August 29, 2013, with 64 stations, 700 bikes, and over 1,000 founding members who believed in us from the very start. We now have over 5,000 annual members that use Bay Area Bike Share to get from Point A to Point B — whether from the Caltrain to the office, from Market St. to the Ferry Building, or from San Jose State to the SAP Center.
It takes one awesome team to keep this system running, but above all, we say THANK YOU to our members. Thank you for trying this new transit system called “bike share,” or for trying bike share in the Bay Area after loving it somewhere else. Thank you for biking again for the first time in 30 years, or for simply adding another bike (or 700) to your collection. Thank you for telling friends, family, and colleagues about a wonderful - and unique - way to get around town.
Join us in a quick trip down memory lane, and we hope you’ll keep on riding with us to make year 2 even better!
