SAN JOSE, CA — Beginning June 13, North San José residents and employees will have easier access to Ford GoBike’s bike share system. The 200 new dockless bikes will have a rear-wheel lock that allows them to be parked outside of a dock — anywhere a bicycle can responsibly be parked, including at a public bike rack or out of the way of pedestrians on the sidewalk. The new technology makes the service available to a larger community of potential bike share users.
Ford GoBike partnered with the City of San José and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) to launch its docked system in downtown San José in 2017. The new expansion makes bikes available to a greater number of users, while the dockless technology means more destinations can be reached using the system. The service area is bounded roughly by the Guadalupe River to the west, Coyote Creek to the east, the South Bay Freeway to the north and Trimble Road to the south. See a map of the service area here.
