More two-wheeled transportation is on the way for the Bay Area, where a bike-sharing plan that's been pushed back more than a year will finally see the light of day.

In August, the collaboration between the Bay Area Air Quality Management District and Alta Bicycle Share will make 700 bikes available in 70 strategically-placed locations along the Bay, in the Financial District, and near train and bus stations in Redwood City, Mountain View, Palo Alto and San Jose.

To access the network of bikes, you'll need to buy a pass that gives you pick-up and drop-off privileges at any of the bike-sharing locations. No word yet on pricing for the program, but transit agencies are spending $7 million on the project, which they hope to expand to a thousand bikes at 100 locations when more funding comes through.
