New LimeBikes Are All Over Scottsdale and parts of SRPMIC
Since November, there have been sightings of bright green and yellow bicycles all around Scottsdale, including some that have made their way to the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.
LimeBikes are part of a new bike-sharing program and can be used by anyone. Unlike the bicycles in Tempe or Chandler, these bikes are dockless. There is no designated station to park the bike, and riders can leave the bikes along the street when finished, preferably in a safe place such as near a bus stop or an existing bike rack.
For bicycle access, download the phone app to your smartphone device and pay via credit card as you go. The phone app lets you see the location of available LimeBikes around the area. The price can range from $1 per 30 minutes to $29.95 for a month and 100 rides.
The Community is working with the vendor to bring safe pick-up and drop-off locations to the Talking Stick Entertainment District and possibly within the interior of the Community.
It is highly recommended that if you see a LimeBike parked in an unsafe area of the Community (a field, side of the road, ditch, Community owner’s land) to please call or text 1-888-LIME-345. A LimeBike crewmember will come pick it up within 24 hours. This will help preserve the bicycles.
