Taking a Ford to work is about to mean something totally different in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The car manufacturer announced on Friday it will be sponsoring the Bay Area Bike Share program’s expansion, which will bring a total up 7,000 bikes — up from 700 — to the region.
While the new bikes will start hitting the pavement in spring 2017, the San Francisco area will boast the second largest bikeshare network (behind New York) in the U.S. by the end of 2018, thanks to the Ford partnership.
The name of the system — which is run by bikeshare network startup Motivate — will change to Ford GoBike. Access to the bikeshare network, such as renting a bike for the day, will be accessible via a Ford app.
