Dock-less bikeshare company hopes to expand into Atlanta, Brookhaven

Lime, a company that offers dock-less bikesharing, has applied for permits in Atlanta and Brookhaven. According to the business, both requests are under review. 

“Atlanta is a dynamic, forward-moving city, where smart mobility makes sense,” Sidney McLaurin, Lime regional general manager, said in a news release. “Lime will give Atlantans a choice for affordable, flexible transportation while alleviating congestion and promoting environmental sustainability.”

Lime, which is available in 50 markets, uses bikes and scooters that are GPS and 3G-enabled, in an effort to make them simple for riders to find, unlock and pick up. When the ride is finished, riders simply end the ride with the Lime app and park by the street curb, or at a bike rack.
