Give back when you ride with Lime
We marry our global experience with a hyper-local focus to meet the unique needs of every city and neighborhood we serve.
Lime Hero is our community empowerment program that allows riders to round up the cost of their rides to support a community organization in their hometown. Through partnerships with more than 50 organizations in more than 90 cities, riders who become Lime Heroes help to improve their communities with every ride they take. More than 85,000 Lime Hero riders have already helped to raise more than $260,000 globally for non-profit organizations addressing clean-air, safe streets, youth and community programming, services for the unhoused and more.
When you join Lime Hero, the cost of each trip you take will round up to the nearest dollar (or a similar conversion to your local currency) and the difference will be donated to a local nonprofit partner. Tap the ‘Donate’ button in the menu of your Lime app to join Lime Hero.
Small donations, big impact
The average donation is just 0.27 cents. But over time these donations make a big impact for our partners. To date, Lime Hero has raised more than $260,000 (converted to USD) for charities and nonprofit organizations around the world.
With our support, organizations like The Felix Project have been able to further their mission to end hunger in London. In California, our partners at The Los Angeles Bicycle Coalition continue to work diligently to advocate for safer streets for bicyclists. By joining the Lime Hero program, you can make an important difference in your community.
