Bike to Work Day in the San Francisco Bay Area is primarily funded by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission with the help of financial donations from event sponsors and volunteers.
There were over 100 energizer stations throughout the bay region where cyclists can stop by for refreshments and promotional items.511 Contra Costa has supported cyclists and Energizer Station hosts throughout  Contra Costa County since 2001 using  Bay Area Air Quality Management District funds and the Contra Costa Transportation Authority’s half-cent sales tax for transportation funds.
