On Wednesday, Market Street became free of private cars, making it safer and easier to bike, scoot, and take public transit on San Francisco's busiest downtown corridor! It's a route virtually all Lime employees who work at our SF headquarters take daily, and an incredible achievement for advocates who have long worked to make the Better Market Street project a reality.
We were so excited about this positive change toward safer streets in San Francisco, we gathered Lime employees on a ride to the Embarcadero to participate in Mayor Breed’s celebration event, followed by a scoot/bike down Market Street with the SF Bike Coalition.
"Building healthier, safer and more sustainable urban living environments by reclaiming our cities for people from traffic has always been our mission,” said Lime CEO, Brad Bao. “We are honored to have our headquarters located in San Francisco, off of Market Street, providing micromobility solutions to advance that mission. We are proud that our hometown is leading the movement through the Better Market Street project, and that we are able to celebrate with city and community leaders, like Mayor London Breed and the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, on this groundbreaking project."
We want to thank all of the local leaders and advocates who continue to advance safer streets for all who live, work or visit San Francisco. Lime is proud to support these efforts and offer shared alternatives to car travel.
