Motivate, the operator of the Ford Gobike branded bike share system is proposing three bike stations in Sunnyside and would like your input.
The system offers public use of the bikes for $3.00 per half hour ride, $9.95 for a day pass or $145.00 for a year of unlimited forty-five-minute rides. If you qualify for Calfresh, SFMTA (Low Income) Lifeline Passes or PG&E CARE utility discount you can get a year of unlimited one-hour rides for $5.00.
Bike sharing is a great way to get around for people who would like to cycle but it also frees up space on the streets for drivers and it lightens the load for Muni by diverting people to other modes of transit.
The proposed station locations are Monterey at Gennesee, Hearst at Edna, Hearst at Baden and Judson, near Gennesee.
Motivate says their Ford GoBike station locations are determined based on a combination of community feedback (public workshops, community meetings, etc), engineering analysis, neighborhood needs and input from the city of San Francisco. Additionally, when selecting suitable locations, numerous criteria are considered including access to solar power, American Disabilities Act requirements and anticipated demand. You can read more about their outreach process on their expansion page.
