HTH!
Thank you, that is great. I have been looking at the Pleasanton website all the time but forgot it would have all that stuff too. Thanks!

I lived on Bernal and I know that on Sunol Blvd/1st and Main St. it gets loud with bikers on the weekends. They rev up n down being the weekend harley drivers that they are.

Foothill Rd. is very quite from what I recall. Vineyard area. It all has good walking paths along 680 and such.

Default Getting to and from San Jose airport

Hi,
Hope I'm doing this correctly. I'm a forum (of any kind), virgin.

Does anybody have suggestions for public or private and relatively inexpensive transportation to and from SJO? I want to be able to fly in and out on Frontier and they don't use OAK. (Based in Pleasanton, by the way)

Thanks for any help!

ACE Trains can probably get you close to the San Jose Airport, but you would still have to walk.

Default bicyle friendly?

Try For Rent Houses, Townhouses, Condominiums, Duplexes Tri-Valley East Bay Call 925-462-1101 for rentals near downtown- I've seen a few signs for this property management company- they might have something you'd be interested in. As for other areas, "Birdland" seems close enough to downtown (street names have bird names). I'm not sure about other areas in Pleasanton, it's REALLY spread out in my opinion. There's probably more by the way of nicer apartment complexes near "Stoneridge Mall". Other areas nearby is "Vintage Hills" and "Pleasanton hills"- mostly single family homes, I think. Definitely more happening in the downtown area, however.

Pleasanton has a lot of downtown traffic and it is not safe to ride a bike, and there are no bike path in the downtown area that I have seen. The downtown street is narrow and there are just too many cars as this one little street is basically where all the action is. I hardly see bicyles going through the area though it has a bicycle shop. You have to go outside of the area to bike. There are some special bike trails but not a lot. It is not a bike friendly city. There is no such thing in the bay area cities! Even Palo Alto, with bike path, you will see very few people biking as the traffic is just too heavy. The biking in the bay area is safer for groups that bike together and so one is very aware of a group of people whereas it is easier to "miss" one biker and hit him.
