Where are the Bike Stations? View a Map.

  • San Francisco – 115+ bike stations mostly around SoMa, Caltrain, Mission, Castro, Financial District, Market Street, Hayes Valley, Embarcadero and North Beach
  • East Bay (Oakland / Berkeley / Emeryville) – 85+ bike stations – incl. Lake Merritt, Temescal, Uptown/Downtown Oakland, & Berkeley
  • San Jose – 35 bike stations

Why 30 minutes? Because it’s Bike Share! The 24-hour pass allows you to zip from A to B, checking out a bike from any station for up to 30 minutes, and returning it to another once you’ve reached your destination so that someone else can use the bike while you’re having lunch, visiting a museum or hanging out with friends.

And then when you’re ready, grab another bike and head out to your next destination.
