BIKE SHARING FEASIBILITY STUDY (2013)
The Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM) has recently completed a study looking at the feasibility of initiating a bicycle sharing program in Marin. The program would be similar to those launched in other places, including Paris, Minneapolis, Washington DC, and Boston. It would feature self-service, automated stations at various locations around the county where one could obtain a bicycle, ride it to their destination, and return it to the same or another station. The bicycles are designed for around-town types of trips, featuring baskets and racks to carry things as opposed to longer-distance touring bicycles such as those rented by Blazing Saddles in San Francisco which are targeted exclusively toward tourists. You can read the study on the TAM website.

Update December, 2011 - The County of Marin Department of Public Works recently completed its Fifth Annual Count & Survey to find out how many people are walking and biking in Marin County, as part of the Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program. This effort collected data at 23 locations in the cities, town, and unincorporated areas of the county.
September 2011: Bicycle and pedestrian counts and surveys were repeated throughout Marin County at the same locations as 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. This report demonstrates that Marin County residents are walking and bicycling throughout the county, and that bicycling rates have increased since 2007.
