Lime Access

Mobility solutions that are shared, affordable and accessible

At Lime, we believe in providing mobility for all. That's why we've created Lime Access - an affordable way to use Lime in your city. We're also proud to partner with PayNearMe and to support a text-to-unlock feature, both of which promote equitable mobility by removing the barrier of smartphone and credit card ownership.

To qualify for Lime Access, an individual simply needs to demonstrate eligibility or participation in any state or federally-run assistance program.

Lime Access members receive a 95% discount on all Lime pedal bike rides and a 50% discount on all Lime-E electric-assist bike and Lime-S electric scooter rides.

Once you've joined Lime Access, you can pay using cash at one of PayNearMe's 27,000+ retail locations.

Qualifying is simple. Email access@limebike.com with the following information. (Please note: by emailing the Access team, users affirm that they have read and agree to our User Agreement and Privacy Policy.) A Lime representative will get back to you within 2 business days with any next steps and further information.

  1. Full Name
  2. Phone Number (this number should be for the phone you plan to use for LimeBike)
  3. Valid government-issued photo ID
  4. Proof of low income status (e.g. EBT card, discounted utility bill, or any other state or federally-run assistance program document)

Once qualified for Lime Access, you will receive a PayNearMe payment code. To complete payment:

  1. Take your PayNearMe payment code to a participating payment location.
  2. Show the payment code to the clerk and pay with cash.
  3. Keep your receipt as proof of payment.

**For our Lime Riders in Ithaca, qualification and support is also available through our partner, Bike Walk Tompkins
