Lime E‑scooters in Boulder

Founded in 2017, Lime is the largest and most experienced micromobility operator in the world. We serve more than 250 cities in over 35 countries, deploying more than 250,000 e-bikes, e-scooters, and adaptive vehicles every day. Lime riders have taken more than 400 million rides – 99.99% of which have been incident-free globally – saving over 3.1 million tons of CO2 from the atmosphere.

Lime has been a micromobility partner to the city of Boulder since Fall 2021. In Spring 2023, City Council gave the City of Boulder’s Transportation and Mobility team the green light to expand the Lime e-scooter program citywide with a phased and iterative approach. Lime is thrilled to serve more areas of the Boulder community, including CU Boulder's full campus!
