Each year over 200 low-income East Bay residents receive free bicycles through our Bike-Go-Round program. Participants get everything they need to start using the bicycle as their primary transportation— a lock, helmet, rack, and other essentials, a personalized transportation plan, and urban riding training from Bike-Go-Round instructors.

We believe our Bike-Go-Round participants benefit from the efficient, reliable, zero-cost, flexible, and safe transportation that bicycles— combined with our local public transportation— can provide. Participants are able to reach jobs, services, and resources over a wide geographic range, and will have the option of reaching these places during off-hours or away from major bus lines.

Bike-Go-Round generally works with groups of participants from a partner community organization. In the past we have worked with organizations such as the International Rescue Committee (IRC), and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. To contact Bike-Go-Round staff, email or call (510) 536-6732.

The Bike-Go-Round is supported by the MTC Lifeline Transportation Program and Alameda CTC.
