Revolutionizing urban mobility
Zero subsidy & Zero cost
Our 60-day pilot program guarantees that if LimeBike does not meet the city's expectations, we’ll exit.
We cover all bike maintenance, operation, and rider education costs. We do not need corporate sponsorships or subsidies.
Premiere bike manufacturer Specialized build and test each LimeBike to ensure that it meets the highest safety standards.
We collaborate with cities and customize roll-out plans and parking directions that meet all local requirements.
The best of both worlds: a station-less network & True partnership
LimeBike provides the most affordable and city-friendly bike sharing network available. We aim to improve urban mobility and reduce congestion, unshackled from public subsidies for operation and expensive docking stations.
mission-driven, city-first approach
Our mission is to revolutionize urban mobility in cities and campuses by providing a greener, more efficient, and affordable transportation that is designed to improve urban sustainability. LimeBike wants to partner with cities, and work together in determining the most appropriate operating and parking model. Our team has vast experience in working closely with local governments, community organizations, and tech companies.
LimeBike deployment comes at zero cost to the city. With a strong financing and operating model, we operate and maintain our bike-share program without relying on corporate sponsorship revenue. By charging riders just $1/ride (cheaper than existing subsidized programs today) and working with cities to increase designated bike parking, we aim to maximize ridership and enhance mobility throughout any city. A self-sufficient bike program is the only one that can be scaled.
Flexible & Scalable
Without docking stations, cities can increase available designated parking locations. This improves both bike availability and convenience for the end-user, resulting in higher levels of ridership that can be scaled, neighborhood-by-neighborhood.
"LimeBike has revolutionized the ease with which cities can deploy world-class bike share systems at no cost to taxpayers. Instead of the bulky, cost-intensive docked systems that cities have deployed over the past five years, LimeBike integrates seamlessly into urban transportation systems to provide a last-mile solution that is truly equitable and efficient."
The Honorable Michael Nutter
Former Mayor of Philadelphia, 2008-2016
"LimeBike seems to be offering a win-win-win for cities: a very affordable bike share solution for users; the scalability and flexibility of a dockless bike sharing solution; and a self-sustaining model requiring no public subsidy. They have the city-friendly and city-first approach needed to make these new systems work.”
Former City Manager for City of San Mateo, California
“LimeBike is one of the great new companies I've encountered at UC Berkeley's SkyDeck. LimeBike is solving a real problem with a cutting-edge and cost effective solution for universities- and unlike many disruptive tech companies they are above board in partnering directly with the University and local government. Their dockless, free-to-university bikes might finally spread bike sharing across campuses nationwide."
CTO of UC Berkeley and SkyDeck advisor
"LimeBike is truly different, and quickly proved it. Their team of experts took time and care to research our market and to offer customized proposals for both campus and city."

"To this day, we continue to over-power and over-spend on the first and last mile in urban transport. Future mobility systems will have shared micro-services that move people, not cars. A smart, affordable and widely accessible bicycle network is the pioneer of those services and LimeBike seems to be leading the pioneers in the US."

"LimeBike is an example of how some of our most challenging problems may be solved with some of the simplest inventions."
Executive Director UC Berkeley SkyDeck
"CEO Toby Sun and Chairman Brad Bao have deep experience putting together teams that can tackle software, hardware, operations, and more. We couldn’t be more excited about this company, the team, and the change they can bring to cities.”
