DISCLAIMER: I am a part owner of a Seattle based electric bike company. I was not paid by Limebike or my company to review the Lime E. I am just an advocate for alternative transportation and low impact lifestyle and I wanted to share my experience. Hope you enjoy and subscribe!
Limebike’s Lime E is the first bike share company to release a dockless electric bike in Seattle, Washington.
Dockless bike share companies entered Seattle last summer after the City’s program, Pronto, failed. The city of Seattle planned to release an electric bike share program but funding was cut and the plans went dead. Limebike is not the only company offering dockless electric bikes. Recently Uber partnered with Jump, a dockless bike share program with their first fleet in San Francisco.
Will these e-bikes benefit the Seattle community and be part of the answer to Seattle’s traffic?
