Biking

Bicycling

Bicycling is an easy and inexpensive way to make exercise part of your daily commute. Bikes are allowed on all Bay Area buses and ferries and most rail lines, and most buses are equipped with bike racks. With more bikeways being added each year, Redwood City is an excellent place to ride a bicycle, whether for leisure or work.

About Us

About Us

Connect, Redwood City! implements a suite of mobility options within the City of Redwood City. The goal of the program is to change travel habits away from single-occupancy personal vehicle travel, thereby reducing vehicle miles traveled and greenhouse gas emissions. The program received a $1.5 million grant from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission through its Climate Initiatives Grant Program.

New mobility options developed under the grant include car share, short distance vanpools, and a revamped telework program for County employees. These strategies will be marketed with existing mobility options including transit, carpooling, and Emergency Ride Home.

Partners for Connect, Redwood City! include the San Mateo County Transit District, City of Redwood City, San Mateo County, and Commute.org. Funding partners include the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, San Mateo County Transportation Authority, and the City/County Association of Governments of San Mateo County.
