LimeBike is excited to participate in the District Department of Transportation’s (DDOT) dockless bike share pilot program in Washington, D.C. which runs from late September through April 2018.

Expanding on the popular Capital BikeShare service, LimeBike will work collaboratively with city officials and key stakeholders on the permit process, providing more sustainable transportation options throughout the four wards. Once approved, we hope to further collaborate with our community partners to roll out a comprehensive equity program that makes bikeshare truly affordable, accessible and equitable for all DC residents.

Unlike traditional stationed bikeshare systems that are often costly to the city to implement and expensive to the riders, LimeBike does not require deposit fees. Its pay-as-you-go rides cost just $1.00, or 50 cents for students, for a 30-minute ride. As with all other cities, LimeBike will hire local on-the-ground employees to manage the system and respond to customer issues.

LimeBike is the first dockless smart bike share in North America, currently operating in 8 cities including Dallas, Texas, Seattle, Washington; Greensboro, North Carolina; South Bend, Indiana;  Key Biscayne, Florida; South Lake Tahoe, California; South San Francisco, California, and with other cities to follow. It is also operating in 8 college campuses as well. LimeBike became the nation's leading dockless bike-sharing service provider by working collaboratively with city officials and the local community. Today, LimeBike became the first dockless bikeshare company to launch in Southern California.
