You don’t have to bike the whole way. Bike-friendly transit is also a ‘bikeway.’ In the Bay Area, we have a lot of buses and trains that accommodate bikes. BART leads the way with bike parking at all of its East Bay stations. Also, you can bring your bike onto BART cars at most times (check BART’s ‘blackout’ periods for bicycles). BART is also renovating many cars to create more interior space for bicycles and they are adding additional bike cages at select stations for enhanced bike parking. Check out BART’s Bike Rules.

Did you know that there are five (5) transit options for getting you and your bike from the East Bay into San Francisco? Here they are:

  • BART (during non-commute hours-folding bikes always allowed)
  • AC Transit Transbay buses (the big green coach-style buses)
  • Blue & Gold Ferry service from Jack London Square and Harbor Bay in Alameda
  • Caltrans Bike Shuttle: leaves MacArthur BART in the morning and drops you off at the Transbay Terminal in San Francisco
  • Amtrak. If you have a train ticket on Amtrak, you can exit at the Emeryville Station and board an Amtrak connecting bus to San Franciisco.


AC Transit, County Connection, LAVTA and most other bus service in the East Bay have equipped their buses with front-mounted racks for bikes. They are easy to use. Check out these videos that show how to use a bike rack:
