Questions or concerns about a LimeBike?
As of May 5, 2018, Dublin residents and visitors have a new bicycling option. The bike share company LimeBike launched a pilot program in Dublin, marking its first location in Ohio! The company provides bicycles around town that riders can rent through a smartphone app. The LimeBike fleet features GPS and self-locking technology.
The process to rent one is simple:
- Download the app and set up an account.
- Use the app to locate a nearby bike.
- Unlock the bike by using the app to scan or enter the bike’s plate number. To pay for a ride, users will enter credit card information into the app for ride credit.
- Enjoy your ride!
- When you’re finished, lock the bike’s back wheel to end your trip. Park the bike in a designated parking area such as a bike rack or identified LimeBike parking space.
LimeBike will rollout 100 bikes initially and gradually expand the fleet to 250. Bikes are available on a first-come, first-served basis. After you complete your ride, the bike will then be available to other potential users. When you need your next ride, just use the app to locate another one.
LimeBike rides cost $1.00 for 30 minutes, or 50 cents for students with a valid student ID.
