The user installs the Lime app on a device (typically a smartphone), on which are displayed all the vehicles available (tracked by GPS) nearby. Before starting a trip, the user supplies payment information. The user then scans the QR code on the vehicle, beginning the trip. To end the trip, the user parks the vehicle then ends the ride through the app. The price of the trip is immediately withdrawn from the user’s credit card. Lime requires every user to take a picture of the parked vehicle and its surroundings, to review whether the vehicle was parked improperly. If any problems were encountered with the trip (like a malfunctioning vehicle) the user can report it through the app.
Operating area and hours
On the Lime app, the user can see the operating area of the service. Riding outside of the operating area is tolerated, but if the user leaves the vehicle outside the operating area, they will be charged a fee. The fee changes based on the location. On the map, there are various red zones, in which users are prohibited to park. If the rider misbehaves, they will incur a fine.
Whilst Lime doesn’t have set operating hours, the availability of electric vehicles (scooters and e-bikes) during nighttime is severely reduced due to their need to be recharged every night. Normal pedal bikes are available 24/7. If a user finds a scooter/e-bike outside during the nighttime, they can still unlock it. Lime operates every day of the week.
