The city of Clayton has launched a new bike share program with Lime throughout the city.
Formerly known as Lime Bike, the California-based company rolled out its fleet in Clayton during the city’s Music and Wine Festival Saturday. The city of St. Louis announced a similar partnership with Lime back in April.
Lime provides affordable, dock-free pedal bikes to cities and college campuses across the country and will offer a new, affordable mode of transportation to and from different spots in the city.Lime also promotes sustainability by reducing the carbon footprint.
Several Lime bikes will be placed at different locations throughout the city for the public to begin riding. Riders will need to download the Lime app to unlock a bike, then pick up a bike, ride at a rate of $1 for every 30 minutes, and lock and leave the bike anywhere for someone else to pick up.
All LimeBikes are GPS and 3-G enabled, allowing riders to find nearby bikes using the app.
To report a bike that is illegally parked, you can either text or call Lime customer service at 1(888)-Lime-345. When reporting, you will need to include the plate number under the QR code. For a quick tutorial on how to use Lime and learn proper bike parking procedures, click How to Lime.
