Where Can I Ride Lime

Electric scooters share the same rights of the road as an adult cyclist.

Adults can ride them safely in any street  posted for 25 mph or less , can ride in any bike lane, and must obeying all traffic signals including riding in the same direction of traffic.

E-scooters should not be ridden continuously on sidewalks with heavy retail pedestrian traffic such as Main Street sidewalks, Granby Street Sidewalks, Colley Ave and 21st street sidewalks, etc.

It’s acceptable to ride in the street in these areas too.

Be extremely careful near light rail tracks and heavy rail crossings and cross them in a perpendicular fashion similar to what a cyclists would do.  Always be on the lookout for road hazards and keep a safe distance from parked or moving vehicles on city streets.
