Bike Share

Bay Area Bike Share launched with a small pilot in 2013. The SF Bicycle Coalition continues to advocate for a much larger program, one that will connect your home with your work and favorite spots around town. A robust bike share system will open up the joy of biking to everyone.


About Bike Share

Bay Area Bike Share (BABS) is managed and maintained by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District. The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition does not run BABS; we work to expand the program, help secure funding for an expansion and advocate for a full scale system in line with other great cities like New York, London, Mexico City and Washington DC.

Have you seen the mint beauties? Look for solar-powered electronic kiosks with many bikes where you can sign up for annual, monthly, daily or other kinds of membership. Once you’re a member, you can take a bike, ride to your destination and return it at the closest kiosk near to where you’re headed. Trips under 30 minutes are free.
