In January 2018, the City Council authorized a year-long pilot program to allow up to two stationless bikeshare providers within Walnut Creek. The City partnered with Lime, formerly Limebike, who concluded its bikeshare operations on February 28, 2019. During the pilot period, the program logged over traveling a median distance of one-half mile with a median trip length of 13 minutes. That’s over 25,000 miles traveled. You can learn more about how the program was implemented here.
City staff is exploring ways to continue the effort around the shared micromobility space and hopes to return to Council and community members in the coming months to discuss how to provide additional transportation solutions to our residents, workers, and visitors.
Thank you to all the community members who provided feedback on the pilot program survey. You can find the results here.
