E‑bikes and E‑scooter in Melbourne

Melbourne, the city that never sleeps.

Lime operates e-bikes and e-scooters across Melbourne, with Melburnians completing over 1.2 million trips since the respective programmes began.

If our riders are heading out for a drink in the CBD with a friend, watching a sporting event, riding along the beach at St Kilda, or shopping on Chapel St, they choose Lime.

FAQ in Melbourne

  • Yes - you must be over 16 years old to ride.

  • No - you do not need a driver’s license.

  • At the moment Lime operates their e-scooters in the City of Melbourne, the City of Port Phillip and the City of Yarra, and all three also operate e-bikes plus the City of Stonnington. If your house is outside of these locations you, unfortunately, won’t be able to travel the entire way.

  • You must follow the blood alcohol content laws that apply to your driver’s license (e.g. 0 or 0.05) - if you do not have a license you must be 0.

  • By law, you must use a helmet, either your personal one or an attached Lime helmet. If you find a vehicle without a helmet and don’t have your own with you, we recommend using the app to find another vehicle nearby.

  • We review all end-trip photos to make sure our riders are on their best parking behaviour. If you don’t park correctly, you will receive a warning from us. If your parking doesn’t improve, then we will have to issue you with a charge.

    The charges increase based on how often and severely the parking rules are broken. Charges can be up to $50.

    If your parking doesn’t improve, we reserve the right to ban your account.

Make sure you ace the ‘end-trip photo’ 📸

The photo you take at the end of your trip is really important. We review all photos to check how you parked your Lime. If you haven’t parked correctly, we may warn or charge you.
