Join us on Thursday, 7/27 anytime between 8:30AM to 10AM as we celebrate our launch with an official Unlocking Ceremony at Westlake Park or participate in our inaugural LimeRide on Saturday, 7/29, starting at 12PM at Gas Works Park. Thank you, Seattle for your excite and support. #BikeShare #LimeBike
LimeBike is a small California-based company. We require zero taxpayers’ dollars. Through our service, we generate tax revenue that goes back the Tahoe community. In addition, we’ve hired local full-time community representatives like Steven and Ricky, born and raised right here in the region, who are always educating riders about bike parking, safety, and monitoring any irregularities. Riders are also instructed to park at bike racks or at areas where it is not obstructing pedestrian walkway or traffic. Finally, we have a 24/7 customer support line that provides the public with immediate assistance or addresses concerns.
The Lime Business Network allows us to integrate with the communities we serve in an environmentally-conscious and collaborative way. With leaders such as WeWork, New Tech Northwest, Galvanize, zulily, EnergySavvy, and many other companies coming on board, we’re able to serve an industrious segment of Seattle’s population, helping to transform urban mobility radically and responsibly.
LimeBike was “built for Seattle”, and is set to offer bikes that are specifically designed for the city’s hilly terrain and weather, including multi-gears and sealed brakes as well as smart features like GPS, self-locking mechanisms, anti-theft alarms and dockless parking.
For the last century, we haven’t seen a truly transformative change to urban mobility in our nation’s cities. By pairing modern technology with something as age-old as the bike, that’s all about to change.
The advance of on-demand, electric and self-driving cars are all car-based mobility enhancements. But what if a better solution for the majority of our daily trips didn’t come on four wheels, but two instead?
San Francisco, California—March 15, 2017— Bay Area-based LimeBike announced today that it has raised Series A $12M in funding, to revolutionize urban and campus mobility. The round was led by Andreessen Horowitz, with participation from IDG, DCM, Seven Seas and others. Andreessen Horowitz’s General Partner Jeff Jordan is joining LimeBike’s Board of Directors.
