Back in August, the program. made a well-calculated gamble and stuck half the bikes in an area covering downtown, the Financial District, and South of Market. Basically, if bike share doesn’t work there, it won’t work in the Bay Area.</span><br style="color: rgb(34, 34, 34); font-family: arial; font-size: small; line-height: normal;" /> Fri, 10 Jan 2014 00:30:13 +0000 Isabel Angell 38211 at http://kalw.org Will Bay Area Bike Share expand on its downtown success?

But they&rsquo;ve mostly been smaller buses, for hospitals and universities. In the past few years though, bigger charter buses for tech companies like Google and Genentech have also started to use Muni stops.</span></p> Wed, 16 Oct 2013 23:07:28 +0000 Isabel Angell 34551 at http://kalw.org Regulating the Google Buses: the SFMTA's plan for private shuttles SF turns to crowdsourcing for future bikeshare stations http://kalw.org/post/sf-turns-crowdsourcing-future-bikeshare-stations <p><span style="color: rgb(34, 34, 34); font-family: arial; font-size: small; line-height: normal;">Bike sharing is coming to San Francisco and Silicon Valley this August.
