Caltrain: Bikes On Board Campaign
Caltrain allows bikes on all trains (first come, first served). The number of bicycles is limited to 32 per gallery car train and 16 per Baby Bullet train. Many cyclists are frustrated with Caltrain for limited spots and often being bumped from their train on their way to work.
Caltrain hasn't kept up with demand for bikes onboard and for several years the problem of bicyclists being "bumped" (denied boarding and left behind) has worsened and worsened. To learn more about the campaign to fix and grow Caltrain's bicycle "bring along" service, see our BIKES ONboard page.
Bay Bridge Direct Access
Construction continues on a new Bay Bridge East Span complete with a multi-use pathway between Oakland and Yerba Buena Island. Will people crossing on bike or foot be stuck in the middle of the Bay, with no way to get to San Francisco? Or will regional and state leaders fund a West Span pathway to provide shore-to-shore access to serve the whole public?
Golden Gate Bridge Projects
Are you one of the thousands of people who bike over the Golden Gate Bridge each week? The bridge is in the process of getting a series of improvements, including better access to the bridge on the San Francisco side.
BART Bike Improvements
Destinations as far away as Napa, San Jose, Santa Rosa, and Sacramento, are easy to reach, by combining your bicycle and public transit. BART currently allows bikes on all trains except during peak commute hours; the agency has been investigating whether to lift the peak hour ban.
