Is European-style bike sharing coming to the Bay Area?

Maybe so.

The BAAQMD has requested $5.14 million from MTC to fund a bike share pilot project.

The company I’ve been working with Alta Planning + Design has spun-off a new company (Alta Bike Share) that helps cities design and operate these systems. Together with Bixi, we installed an on-street demo for a bike-savvy San Francisco audience at last week’s Sunday Streets.

The Bixi bicycle kiosk system — including the bicycle models used by the Melbourne, London, and Montreal bike sharing operations — was on display.
