It looks like San Francisco is on track to have the nation’s first regional bike share program.
The $7.9 million pilot project would provide bikes in San Francisco and along the Caltrain corridor in San Jose, Palo Alto, Mountain View and Redwood City for use by registered subscribers, much like car-sharing programs.
I can just about imagine a time when commuters will be able to grab a bike in San Jose, ride to BART, drop off the bike at the station, take the train, grab a new bike and ride to work. It would almost make BART a useful way to get around. It would be even better if checking out a bike included a free or discounted BART transfer.
