Happy Birthday, Lime!
We’re 5 years old this year! We’re so grateful to our riders and city partners who have made us the most ridden shared electric vehicles in the world. They are the reason we get closer each year to building a future where transportation is shared, electric, and carbon-free.
Over the last few years, we’ve established ourselves as the leader in shared electric vehicles. We prioritize collaborating with the communities we serve, working together to build the right shared mobility program, addressing the unique needs of each city and its riders, and improving how streets are built. It’s inspiring to see people embrace car-free options like our e-bikes and e-scooters, particularly in cities whose streets prioritize people over cars. Last year, we saw double, even triple, the number of rides in cities with newly created bike lanes.
A few months ago, we closed a successful funding round where we raised $523 million, the highest ever for the micromobility industry. And while we’re very proud of that, we haven’t lost sight of the reason why that funding is important. We’re in the best position to continue bringing our industry-leading Gen4 e-bikes and e-scooters to more cities globally, extending access to more communities in need of sustainable transportation options.
Let us brag about our community of riders for just a minute. Since 2017, together we have:
- Ridden our e-bikes and e-scooters in more than 200 cities (and counting!)
- Surpassed 250 million rides
- Replaced more than 65 million car trips
- Prevented more than 24,000 metric tons of carbon emissions
- Avoided close to 3 million gallons of gas
In the next five years, we’ll continue to build vehicles of the future because we want to fundamentally revolutionize the way people move–and give them more reasons to ditch the car! We will also continue to relentlessly prioritize decarbonization of our own business to get closer to the carbon-free future we all want. Thank you to our riders and cities for helping to make us the most ridden shared electric vehicle company in the world. Ride Green!
