Join Mayor Sam Hindi and other City Councilmembers and representatives from LimeBike at a ribbon-cutting event at City Hall, 610 Foster City Blvd. on Wednesday, June 13 at 2pm. LimeBike, a San Mateo based company, is introducing its fleet of bicycles, e-bikes, and e-scooters throughout Foster City. Learn more about the event here.

LimeBike, one of the nation’s leading bike-share providers, will begin operating in Foster City on June 13. Unlike traditional bike-share services that require you to pick up and drop off bikes at a few designated dock locations, LimeBike is completely dockless, which means you can take it wherever you want to go!
