Lime Bikes — also known as Lime-E bikes — are electric bikes customers can rent by the minute and “return” by parking the bikes safely near their destination. These dockless electric bikes have a built-in motor that automatically provides you a boost when pedaling up hills or other steep terrain. They don’t have throttles, so don’t expect to ride them like a motorcycle. It’s more like a regular bike that’s easier on your legs. They run up to 15 miles per hour for about 20 miles on a full-charge. And, they’re a great transportation option for anyone who wants to explore their city or for commuters who need convenient, affordable rides to work.
Riders can simply find, pick up, and rent these shared e-bikes day or night — even during light rain or snow. That means they can be a fairly reliable last-minute ride.
