Have you noticed green bicycles strewn at random all over town? Have you possibly wondered, like I did, why people were just abandoning identical bikes all over Downtown? Well, the mystery has been solved!
A new bike share program has come to town. You may already be familiar with the Ford GoBikes, which are the blue bikes stored in strategically placed docking stations that previously comprised the city’s only bike share program. Now LimeBike is here to give it a run for its money.

San Jose is looking to the tiny home phenomenon as a housing
option for the homeless. Currently, the city is looking at three different sites
to build a dozen or so of these tiny homes that could offer a temporary housing
