Bay Area Bike Share Memberships Now on Sale

Bay Area Bike Share started selling annual memberships at noon today, and judging by the buzz on Facebook and Twitter, it looks like hundreds of people have already signed up.

Annual members get a year of unlimited rides under 30 minutes for $88 (overage fees still kick in if you take more than 30 minutes). The first 1,000 annual members get a special black key fob instead of the normal blue keys. And for an extra $15, early adopters get two 24-hour passes to share with friends and a Bay Area Bike Share t-shirt.

If you’re not ready to commit to an annual pass, when the system launches you can always pay $9 for a daily pass or $22 for a three-day pass.

In New York City, a few City Council members signed up for Citi Bike soon after memberships went on sale. We have yet to learn which San Francisco supervisor will be the first to stake their claim as a “founding member” of Bay Area Bike Share.
