Shadelands business center in Walnut Creek is launching an easy-to-use, high-tech bikeshare program with LimeBike, a San Mateo-based firm that will 500 of their bright green smart-bikes to the 267-acre Shadelands business center.
The bikes, enabled with GPS, 3G wireless technology, and self-activating locks, will be part of pioneering program to put bikeshare riders on the public streets and in the public places of Walnut Creek.
As might be expected, a LimeBike app makes it simple to find, unlock, and pick up a nearby bike for use while in the center. When finished, riders will be guided to areas where they can drop off their bike in an approved collection point.
The bikes will be available at the center after a kickoff event announcing their arrival scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 23 at noon.
