Bike to Work Day is Thursday, May 9 2013

The Bay Area’s 19th annual Bike to Work Day is this Thursday, May 9. Why not join thousands of Bay Area residents in taking to the streets or trails on your bike?

If you’ll be using public transit as part of your trip or riding over the Golden Gate Bridge, please note the following:

  • The northern entry to the Golden Gate Bridge east sidewalk could be impacted by construction at Alexander Ave & Danes Dr (Bunker Rd). To avoid up to 15 minute delays and a very narrow route through the construction zone, it is suggested that cyclists detour via East Rd, past the Discovery Museum, to Conzelman Road. More info here: and
  • Golden Gate Transit buses are equipped with front-mounted bike racks that accommodate 3 bikes or luggage-bay racks that accommodate 2 bikes. Space is first come, first serve. More info and rules here:
  • Many Golden Gate Larkspur Ferry morning and afternoon commute trips already operate at capacity with respect to the number of bikes they can accommodate. Cyclists are encouraged to use the new bike racks located inside the secure, paid waiting area at the Larkspur Terminal. The Sausalito Ferry vessel can accommodate up to 200 bikes, but not electric bikes. Space on board all GGF vessels is first come, first serve. More info here:

For bus and ferry schedules and trip planning assistance, please visit or call 511 (say “Golden Gate Transit,” then “operator” to bypass recorded messages)/TDD 711. The Golden Gate Customer Service Center is open weekdays from 7am to 6pm.
