LimeBike will kick-off the city-wide expansion of the bike share program at First Friday on Friday, August 4th at 5:30 pm. Come out on Friday to the block of 513 South Elm Street to take a test drive and find out more about the program.
Earlier this month, City Council approved a two-year agreement that allows LimeBike to offer bicycles for a fee anywhere in the city limits. People can use the LimeBike app to locate and rent a bicycle for $1 per half hour. LimeBike is already offered on the UNCG campus for $0.50 per half hour for students, faculty and staff. LimeBike plans to deliver 800 more three-speed bikes to Greensboro to be used at UNCG, NC A&T and in downtown Greensboro in early August. Downtown Greensboro Inc. and Action Greensboro officials are working with center city merchants to identify locations where the bikes can be parked.
After the official bike share celebration stay for First Friday on the Block from 6-9pm on S. Elm St between MLK Jr. Drive & Lewis Street. Talk to representatives from LimeBike, listen to great music, participate in trivia, and grab some food. Click here for the event flyer.
