From Lime:

“Lime, the global leader in shared electric vehicles, is proud to have been awarded permits to continue operating shared e-bikes and e-scooters in Washington, DC through December 31, 2024. Lime will operate 2,500 each of its industry leading Gen4 e-bikes and e-scooters equipped with lock-to technology in the District. 

“Thank you to the District Department of Transportation and all of DC for bringing back e-scooters and e-bikes and allowing us to continue providing residents and visitors with access to affordable, safe, and sustainable ways to get around. Lime is proud of its program here, a program we’ve built on a foundation of safety and equity. We look forward to continuing to connect DC residents to opportunities, jobs, and their communities. We will continue expanding our commitment to equitable service and serving areas of need, especially Wards 5, 7, and 8. We are grateful to DDOT and all of DC for the privilege and the opportunity to again serve all residents and help this city build a more equitable and sustainable transportation system,” said Erika Duthely, Director of Government Relations at Lime. 

Since Lime launched in DC in 2017, nearly 1.9 million unique riders have taken over 7.8 million rides and traveled almost 10 million miles. Lime riders have kept an estimated 1.9 million car trips off the road, saving over 840 metric tons of carbon emissions and 95,000 gallons of gas.
