Conservation Tip

Driving consumes a huge amount of energy.  According to the 2005 edition of the Transportation Energy Data Book published by the U.S. Dept. of Energy, the transportation sector accounts for nearly 30% of total energy use in the U.S.  To make matters worse, we've been going backward in terms of motor vehicle energy efficiency.

Regional Bicycle Share Pilot Project

Bay Area Bike Share

Launched on August 29, 2013, the Bay Area Bike Share (BABS) program is the first bike share system to launch in California and in the United States as a unified regional system. Bike sharing allows both residents and visitors to make short trips by bike and provides an easy and cost-effective “last mile” solution, linking public transit with riders’ final destinations. The BABS system operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week in five cities along the Caltrain commuter rail corridor — San Francisco, Redwood City, Palo Alto, Mountain View and San Jose. The Bay Area’s system consists of 70 stations and a fleet of 700 bikes and  is planned to increase in size in 2015. Since its launch, BABS has achieved more than 280,000 rides and over 600,000 miles pedaled by its 4,700 annual and 26,000 casual members.

Bay Area Bike Share began as a pilot project with funding from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission's (MTC) Initiatives Program and the Air District's Transportation Fund for Clean Air (TFCA) Program.  These funding programs provide grants to projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution from transportation sources. The Air District is the lead administrator of Bay Area Bike Share in partnership with MTC and local partners. For more information please visit:
