LimeBike Launches in Ithaca
Come to a ribbon cutting celebration at Streets Alive! 1:15 PM in front of GIAC (301 W Court St, Ithaca, NY)
Many lime green, 8-speed bikeshare bikes appeared in Ithaca on Monday! Bike Walk Tompkins
and community partners facilitated the process to choose a system that would fit our community. The bikeshare is operated by LimeBike
, a private dock-free bikesharing company that has launched bikeshare in over 50 markets.
There is no membership required to use the bikes. Just download the app on the App Store
or Google Play
store, find a bike, and unlock the wheel. One-way bike trips can be taken anywhere you like, then you just lock the rear wheel when you are done. You can leave them anywhere you could normally park a bike, ideally next to existing bike racks or in the zone between the sidewalk and the street. Don't block pathways, bus stops, ramps for wheelchairs, or leave them on the ground. Bikeshare relies on good parking etiquette!
