Bike to Work Program
Bicycle commuting is the regular use of a bicycle to travel from home to work. Bicycles are used for commuting worldwide, though in isolated pockets in the United States. Employees living within 5 to 7 miles of their worksites should consider using a bike to get to work. You can get a great workout and you can pedal off the stresses others feel while they are stuck in traffic!
Mixed-mode commuting combines the use of a bicycle with public transportation to make your commute even more convenient. Omnitrans and RTA buses are equipped with bike racks on them so you can take the bus one way or part of the way, and pedal your way back. Bike racks are available at many worksites and bike lockers are located at Human Resources 157-175 W. Fifth Street, San Bernardino, the Hall of Records at 222 West Hospitality Lane, San Bernardino, and the Foothill Communities Law and Justice Center in Rancho Cucamonga. Download the
