FAIRFIELD — More than 100,000 trips got made during the first four months of the regional Bike Share program, according to organizers.
The program makes 700 bicycles available at 70 Bay Area stations in San Francisco, Redwood City, Mountain View, Palo Alto and San Jose. People rent bikes from the stations and return them to any station in the system. Commuters and tourists can use the bikes for such purposes as traveling to and from Bay Area Rapid Transit stations.

Bay Area Bike Share is a $7 million pilot program among various agencies, including the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency and Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority.
