Building A Safer, Healthier Community

Leave the Car, It's Not that Far! Go Walk. Go Bike. Go Healthy.

Quality of life in South San Francisco means staying healthy and protecting our environment. That's why we as a community need to work together to keep our community a Healthy Living, Healthy City! How? One of the ways is to reduce our carbon footprint by leaving the car behind, just one day a week. Your car, fellow drivers, your pocketbook, and the environment will thank you for it!

Scoop: Meet Your New Commute

Scoop into savings! Meet the City's new partner in carpooling -- Scoop! No, it's not the nickname of your fave ice cream shop but rather a carpool app that connects fellow drivers who would otherwise drive solo with riders who are traveling to or near the same destination. The City of South San Francisco-Scoop partnership offers incentives of up to $2 for drivers and discounts of up to $2 for riders who use the Scoop app to carpool. The Scoop app is open to anyone who lives or works in South San Francisco.


LimeBike and Spin: Urban Bike Sharing

They're orange. They're lime. And, no, they're not citrus but they can be beneficial to your health and wellbeing. What are they? They're the two-wheeled, orange- and lime-colored bikes that are sprinkled around town to help get you around town! The City has partnered with two bike sharing programs called LimeBike and Spin to encourage residents to go bike and go healthy by using these faster, cheaper, and healthier transportation options.

These two bike share programs are dockless, which allows residents to conveniently pick up and drop off these citrus-colored two wheelers almost anywhere as opposed to finding a docking station to return them.

South City residents get 10 FREE rides on LimeBike or Spin. Downloaad the app for free today!

For more information on LimeBike, please call or text 1.888.546.3345 or email LimeBike -- Your Ride, Anytime.
