🚲 Bike Share is the new carpool

If you’re looking to travel a bit further, bike share is an ideal option. Bay Wheels costs only $3 per 30-minute ride and $0.30 per minute after that. However, membership comes with a lot of perks — for $13 a month, you get 45-minute rides, a 33% discount, and no unlocking fees.

Caltrain day pass prices range depending on how many zones you travel, but you can enjoy a 20% discount on monthly passes through June 2023. Pssst, Clipper START can also get you up to 50% discounts on single-rides.
