Clarifying our role in bringing Lime to Ithaca

Bike Walk Tompkins conducted six months of research and ultimately recommended LimeBike out of nine choices to the City of Ithaca.

Local Lime Options and Pricing

Given our early adopter status, pricing for LimeBike pedal bikes in Ithaca remains at $1 per 30 minutes. Lime-E electric pedal assist bikes cost $1 to unlock + 15¢ per minute. Lime-Es are part of a small pilot of 30 electric bikes that can help you conquer the hills. These bikes max out at 15 mph.

As construction season winds up, we'd like to take a moment to acknowledge the City of Ithaca's many projects that have improved our streets for walking and biking...
  • Repainting of N Cayuga St bike lanes and crosswalks
  • W MLK Jr/State St bridge & Floral Ave project (top left)
  • Spencer Rd traffic calming and sidewalk install (top right, bottom left)
  • Bump out at the Plain & Clinton intersection (bottom left)

Mountable curb on Spencer Rd provides traffic calming for neighbors while allowing access for emergency vehicles.
New sidewalk on Spencer Rd gives people a safe place to walk.
Small bump-out on W Clinton St at Plain St shortens the distance for people to cross.
Thank you City of Ithaca staff for getting us a little closer
to a truly Bike and Walk Friendly Community
