There are two payment plans for LimeBike:

  • Pay per ride – Load a minimum of $5 into your account and ride. An .edu email account is charged $.50 to unlock and 2.5 cents per minute.  
  • A subscription fee of $14.95 gives you 100 rides in a 30-day period (.50 per ride thereafter).  If you use LimeBike at least once per day, this is the way to go. The subscription will automatically renew every 30 day period unless it is canceled.

Use the LIMEND code when registering for a new LIME account and receive 3-free rides.
