Bike Share

Recommended for travel of less than 7 miles while conducting official business.

Bay Wheels is a regional public bicycle sharing system that serves the cities of San Francisco, Redwood City, Palo Alto, Mountain View, and San Jose, along the Caltrain corridor.

How it works

  • Join – Annual members will receive a membership key in the mail.
  • Ride - Insert membership key at any available dock. Wait for the green light, and pull the bike out while lifting the seat. Annual membership includes unlimited trips up to 30 minutes each.
  • Return - After your trip, return the bike to any station in your service area. Push the bike into an available dock, and wait for the green light to confirm your trip has ended. Please fill out a Travel Reimbursement/Expense Form and submit to your supervisor or manager with receipt for reimbursement.
  • Repeat - Enjoy unlimited trips of up to 30 minutes each at no additional cost! Remember, trips longer than 30 minutes will incur additional fees starting at $4 for the first additional half hour, since the idea of bike sharing is to make bicycles available for short trips.
