Lime Bike Share to begin dropping dockless bikes across town this week

The City of Orlando adopted some revisions to their regulatory framework concerning the operation of bike share companies this past October.

As a result, the way has been paved for new bike share systems to plug into the Orlando market, including Lime (Website), a dockless bike sharing system that doesn’t require a designated bike rack. They can be picked up and dropped off anywhere in city limits.

Lime will be distributing 500 bikes throughout the City this week, including electric-assist models, as shown in the above photo taken by Rethink Your Commute (Website). The electric-assist bike is powered by a lithium battery that helps riders get up to 14.8 mph “without breaking a sweat.”

A Limebike membership costs $29.95 a month or $1 for an individual ride.

“We will continue to explore
opportunities like this to further
viable, healthy and environmentally sustainable transportation alternatives.”

– Cassandra Lafser, City or Orlando
