Lime Access in Boise
Lime Access is our global equity program that provides discounted rides to eligible residents. It is part of our core mission to provide sustainable transportation options to all. Lime Access members in Boise will receive a heavily discounted rate of $0.50 to unlock plus $0.07 per minute.
To help facilitate enrollment for all who are eligible while also respecting privacy concerns and limited technology access, Lime has developed our Direct Enrollment feature. Direct Enrollment allows our riders to verify their eligibility through our community partners Agency for New Americans and the Boise Women’s and Children’s Alliance instead of uploading their eligibility documentation into our app.
