The City of Fremont is partnering with Lime to bring a bike and scooter sharing system to Fremont. Shared bicycles and scooters will offer a convenient new form of mobility for Fremont residents, workers, and visitors for accessing transit and for short trips. The system will feature a fleet of 500 pedal bicycles, electric assist bicycles, and electric scooters. The system is a “dockless” model in which users locate bicycles or scooters via a mobile application, and then may end their trips by locking the bike or scooter at any location that meets parking rules. The City has received a grant which it will use to mark parking zones in high demand locations such as transit hubs and commercial centers. Lime bikes and scooters will be available throughout the city.
The planned system launch is February 2019. The City’s agreement with Lime is for a one-year pilot program. At the end of this period, the City will evaluate the program and develop a longer-term permit program for shared “micromobility” devices.
Stay tuned for additional information, including opportunities to test ride Lime bikes and scooters leading up to the system launch. For more information, please visit Bike Share Program.
