Keen Denver observers will have noticed a new species of dockless e-bike out in the streets today as Lime deployed a fleet of 150 sharable, electric bikes.
Actually, you probably didn’t need to be looking that closely to notice them. They’re a very bright green.
Lime wasn’t among the companies initially permitted for dockless bikes in Denver — only scooters — but Denver Public Works spokeswoman Heather Burke said they applied a little later on and were cleared for 250 bikes.
Using Lime bikes will cost 15 cents per minute, and it’s $1 to unlock.
Lime is the first company to offer a cash program, according to a press release. The program is called Lime Access. Qualified people can get a 50 percent discount on e-bikes and scooters and pay with cash with PayNearMe in 7-Elevens and Family Dollars around Denver. You can learn more about the program here.
