November 2015 Update

Bike Share to come by 2017, why not next year?

SACOG and local agency partners are moving quickly to select a bike share operator by Spring 2016 and begin bike share service by Spring 2017. But why can’t we have a bike share system by Spring 2016 instead? Since January 2015, after SACOG became the lead agency to manage the Regional Bike Share Project, SACOG conducted extensive research to understand current best practices and lessons learned within a dynamic bike share industry.

General information

Bicycling

In the time we already spend getting to work, we can get the exercise we need, but “don’t have time for.” Commuting to work by bike or for neighborhood errands is a great way to get fit and stay healthy. Combined with transit, cycling can also be part of a commute over longer distances. Besides having fun and getting healthier, you’ll be improving our air quality and reducing traffic congestion. The bicycle is the most energy-efficient form of travel ever devised — so you’ll be reducing energy use and our dependence on fossil fuels.
