Bay Area Bike Share unveils additional Phase 3 Emeryville stations

1 min read

Bay Area Bike Share (now called “Ford GoBikes” as part of a corporate sponsorship) announced it will add 66 additional East Bay stations including five more in Emeryville. The expansion plans unveiled yesterday by the MTC bring the total number of bike share stations in our city to ten.

The updated map below shows proposed “Phase 3” station locations, as well as the locations that were selected earlier this year for Phases 1 and 2. The Phase 3 stations proposed in Emeryville focus on expanding the reach of Bike Share to the interior of Emeryville with the following stations:

  • 19 – EmeryTech Building at 65th & Hollis
  • 24 – Organic Community Garden at 59th & Doyle
  • 25 – Amtrak Station
  • 27 – Bay Trail at Christie & Shellmound
  • 28 – Parc on Powell at Stanford & Hollis

Phase 1 & 2 stations, labeled in blue, are scheduled to be installed in Spring 2017. The initial roll-out to the East Bay was announced back in 2014. A map with all planned East Bay locations can be viewed here [PDF].


The East Bay “Core” cities of Berkeley, Oakland and Emeryville will eventually expand to 130 stations accounting for 1,500 bikes. The entire Bay Area network will grow to 700 stations and 7,000 bikes when the build-out is complete scheduled by the end of 2018.

Annual membership is $88 with plans for reduced membership fees for low-income users.”We’re proud to have far surpassed our goals in terms of providing service to diverse communities across the East Bay” said Emily Stapleton, Bay Area Bike Share’s general manager. “Membership will be accessible to low-income residents at just $5 for the first year.” Members will also have access to SF and San Jose’s Bike Share network.

Motivate, who run the program here in the SF Bay and many other major metropolitan areas, are also in discussions to expand the program to some Peninsula cities. Feedback about the proposed Phase 3 stations can be provided here. Read the entire news release online.

  1. End of 2018? To install bike parking? Seems awfully slow but the phase 3 E’Ville locations are sweet! One of them is a stone’s throw from my house.
