Silicon Valley Bike Share to begin next March

The VTA Bike Share proposal came closer to reality this week after a half million dollar grant was awarded this week to pilot the program. VTA say they plan to begin the test bike share this March, with bike share kiosks at San Jose Diridon Station, Mountain View Castro Street Station, and Palo Alto University Avenue Station.

According to San Jose councilman, VTA board member and bike booster Sam Liccardo, these Caltrain locations are planned because they are the busiest in Santa Clara County and to alleviate problems with bike bumping on Caltrain.

  1. Although bike share is nice, to really enable bicycles, a car share program such as zipcar would be even better.
