Lime, the world’s largest provider of shared electric vehicles, launched a fleet of Gen4 e-bikes in St. Pete Wednesday, marking a return to bike share for St. Pete after the city decided earlier this year to upgrade its previous fleet from manual pedal bikes to the more popular e-bikes.
The partnership with Lime is expected to save the city about $63,000 in annual subsidies.
Users can access the e-bikes through the Lime app or through the Uber app. The bikes have a 25-mile range and top speeds of 15mph. About 45 hubs are located throughout downtown and surrounding areas.
