Andrew Casteel —

Once a year, people join together and leave their cars at home because on May 13th its bike to work day. People all over the Silicon Valley work together on May 13th to save money, exercise and reduce their carbon emissions by riding their bikes instead of driving. This event so fun and I encourage everyone to participate.

Bike to Work Day — Thursday, May 13 at Stanford!

Andrew Casteel —

Get ready to bike and/or walk to work on Thursday, May 13, as we celebrate the greenest ways to commute to Stanford.
Why Bike To Work?

* Almost 40 percent of Bay Area commuters live within five miles of their workplace, a distance considered ideal for bicycle commuting.
* If every person living this close to their workplace pedaled to work on Bike to Work Day, more than 60,000 vehicles would be off the road, reducing tailpipe emissions by more than 150,000 pounds.
* Bicycling or walking could save both emissions and expenses. Try our Commute Cost and Carbon Emissions Calculator for your savings.

On Thursday, May 13, thousands of people throughout the Bay Area will leave their car keys at home and pedal to work, school, or appointments. It is the region's 16th annual Bike to Work Day and is part of Bike Month, celebrated annually throughout May.

AC Transit will participate in the City of Oakland's Bike to Work Day event on May 13 from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. at downtown Oakland's Energizer Station in Frank Ogawa Plaza where there will be free pancakes, prizes, and valet bike parking for the day.

We're encouraging AC Transit passengers to bike -- or bike and take the bus -- to the event! Participants will be able to load their own bike on the front rack of an AC Transit bus and receive two free AC Transit 1-ride tickets just for trying it out!

Throughout the region, dozens of events taking place during the month of May are designed to get people excited about bicycling and its benefits to public health, traffic reduction, and the environment. For more information about Bike to Work Day activities around the Bay Area, click here.
