Lime has been a consistent partner of the City of Portland since 2018. In Portland, riders have taken over two million journeys covering nearly 2.5 million miles, saving 211 tons of CO2 - the equivalent of avoiding over half a million motor vehicle trips. Our mission to provide transportation that is safe, equitable, and sustainable aligns with PBOT’s goals as stated in the New Mobility Snapshot report, including reducing local carbon emissions by 40% and providing tools to move people around the City efficiently. We also align with the City’s goals of doing this safely - so much so that we have already implemented lock-to across our Portland fleet.
