First Bay Area Bike Share Stations Hit the Pavement in San Jose

2:25 PM PDT on August 6, 2013

Updated 4:56 p.m.

The first Bay Area Bike Share stations have landed in San Jose. System operator Alta Bicycle Share began the roll-out yesterday with five stations and another five today, with five more coming tomorrow, said John Brazil, San Jose's bike and pedestrian program manager.

Update: In response to our request, Alta's Laura Ruchinskas said "unfortunately we won't be releasing our detailed install schedule." However, Richard Masoner of Cyclelicious wrote in the comments section that he was told by officials that "San Francisco is close behind and should be ready for installs Real Soon Now."
