Lime has launched a fleet of 250 e-bikes in the London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham today, providing residents with another sustainable and active transport option.
Londoners can rent one of the micromobility operator’s e-bikes from 30 parking bays via the Lime app.
Once a rider has finished a journey, they will need to park it back in one of the designated parking bays.
Lower income residents can get 50% off the cost of Lime’s e-bikes and e-scooters by registering on the LimeAccess programme.
This programme provides eligible riders, including pass holders, key workers, students and job seekers with unlimited discounts for Lime rides.
“Expanding our e-bike service into Hammersmith & Fulham is a key step in our ambition to build a future where transport is shared, affordable and carbon-free,” said Alan Clarke, Senior Director of Policy for Northern & Eastern Europe at Lime.
“The borough is already deeply committed to implementing a more sustainable transport network through its participation in the London e-scooter trial, and it is home to an impressive number of residents that want to live more sustainable and active lifestyles. In partnership with the Council, we hope this number can continue to grow with the introduction of our e-bike services.”
This is the seventh London borough to welcome Lime’s e-bikes, with the provider already operating in Camden, Islington, Ealing, Brent, the City of London and Richmond.
The announcement follows Lime’s plans to invest £20 million in the UK over the next 18 months.
As part of this commitment, we reported that Lime will be launching its new Gen4 e-bike in London this summer, featuring increased motor power, a phone holder and swappable battery.
Lime has also just launched a new “Break Up With Cars” campaign to encourage drivers to end their toxic relationship with cars.
