“About DC Lime scooters “no ride/no park” zones.”

“Dear PoPville,

Noticed yesterday that -without notifying riders- Lime has created and implemented new “off-limit” maps/zones throughout DC that make it nearly impossible to navigate safely through the city.

As an example… I live near 15th and S St NW. I am currently on Grand Jury duty so I used to ride Lime scooters via protected bike lanes on 15th street, then on protected bike lanes on Pennsylvania Avenue to the courthouse (at PA Ave and 3rd St NW). Yesterday when I arrived near Pennsylvania, all of a sudden my scooter just stopped!

That prompted me to check the Lime maps for DC and to discover these new “no ride/no park” zones. I could understand no parking zones on PA Avenue but why “no ride” since there are protected bike lanes in the center of the avenue?

Take a look at the “red zones” on the Lime app. So many off-limit streets! It cuts the city in sections that you cannot reach without having to cross a red zone. Doesn’t make sense.

Also, I don’t see Pennsylvania Avenue as being off-limit on the Skip, Spin scooter apps.

Any insight?”
