Go Green - Bicycle

Go Green, Bicycle - people on bikes photo Bicycling is one of the few “zero-pollute” travel options. The Bay Area is one of the best places in the country to ride a bike to work, school, on errands or to social events. The region offers cyclists thousands of miles of bike paths, lanes and routes, and the 511 BikeMapper can help you find them. For longer trips, try combining bicycling and transit – 511 also provides detailed information on taking bikes on transit.



Want to green your commute? Ridesharing is 2-6 people in a carpool or 7-15 people in a vanpool. It’s a green travel alternative because you help reduce the total number of cars on the road. You save time and money and the earth gets a breath of fresh air.
