Bikesharing at Caltrans

Project Area(s): 
Innovative Mobility

Bikesharing, shared fleet of bicycles, is one strategy to improve the environment, air quality, and community health. This project explored the feasibility of an employee bikesharing program and its ability to connect between public transit and travel destinations. A pilot program was launched with Caltrans District 4 in downtown Oakland to provide their employees access to an alternative mode of transportation during the workday to run errands and attend off-site work meetings. Participants of this bikesharing program used an electronic “BikeLink” card to access the hybrid bicycles stored in electronic lockers. This project was a pilot and model for a larger-scale employee bikesharing program to offer better connectivity and to provide an alternative way to commute to work.
