What is Lime?
Is a scooter and bikeshare company that was
founded on a simple idea that all communities deserve access to smart, affordable mobility.
How It Works For Riders
Download the app and follow the steps to create your account
Enter your credit card info
When you’re in, a map will show you where the nearest Lime scooter and electric bikes are to your location
Check the map for the scooter nearest you with the most full charge (it tells you what the battery life is or how far it will go)
Go to the location and find the scooter
If you don’t immediately see the scooter, there’s an option in the app to make it ring and reveal its location
To unlock the Lime, tap the “Ride” button at the bottom of the screen in the app and then scan the QR code on the scooter using your phone’s camera – or, you can enter the 6 digit vehicle code under the QR code if you have problems getting the scan
Riding A Lime Scooter
There is a three-step process to the pre-ride safety check:
Manually pump the hand brakes to be sure they are taught
Look at the tires to make sure they aren’t damaged
Give the body a once-over to check for any cracks or structural damage
If your safety check uncovers any problems with the scooter, report it to Lime by tapping the exclamation point in the lower left corner of the map screen on the app. Don’t ride a scooter that isn’t safe. Check the area for another Lime that’s ready to go.
You ride the scooter by standing on it with one foot, kicking off, and then standing on it sideways as you accelerate using thumb shifting on the handlebars. You brake using a handbrake on the handlebar just like on a bike. To see a demonstration of how easy it is, check out this short video.
Rules For Lime Riders
Here are Lime’s etiquette suggestions:
Park properly by the curbside
Follow traffic laws
Use the handbrake to stop
Resist stunt riding for your own safety and for those in your path
Don’t ride in pedestrian pathways
Watch out for potholes, rocks, and other obstacles
Follow these rules:
You must be 18 or over to drive a scooter
Wear a helmet (your own, so bring it with you)
Have a valid driver’s license

At the end of the day, you collect Lime Scooters with low batteries from where they’ve been dropped off
Carry them to your home in your own vehicle (truck, van, large sedan, etc.)
Charge them overnight
In the morning, Lime will tell you where to drop them early – just in time for eager commuters
