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
