City of Little Rock & Lime e-scooter pilot, Little Rock, AR, 2019
5 minutes Date Launched: Jan 8, 2019 Pilot Project Timeframe: 6 Month Pilot
The City of Little Rock has partnered with Lime to roll out a six-month electric scooter (e-scooter) pilot program. Through this program, as of January 8, Lime-S scooters are available for rent and use in downtown Little Rock, with up to 500 scooters to eventually be deployed. Scooters can be located and borrowed using the Lime mobile app and cost $1 to unlock plus $0.15 per minute of use until the end of the ride. Reduced rental rates (50% off) are also available for low-income users via the Lime Access program. The scooters will be collected and charged daily by Lime employees and local chargers (“Juicers”). The program aims to offer an affordable, sustainable, equitable way to get around, and may be expanded further after evaluation.
