London Lime riders log over one million rides on dockless e-bikes

London riders have logged over one million rides on Lime’s electric-assist bikes, less than a year since the company first rolled into the British capital.

The milestone translates into approximately 90,000 rides every month.

“Londoners are looking for new ways to travel, and our emission-free e-bikes are playing a significant part in serving this demand,” said Florence Milner, Lime’s general manager for the UK and Ireland.

“It’s great to see the impact our riders are already having on reducing congestion and carbon emissions throughout the city.”

Using modeshift data gleaned from city-specific Lime surveys, it’s estimated that dockless e-bike riders in London have prevented the emission of more than 92 metric tons of CO2.

Lime launched in the UK last year, with the first fleet of Lime-E electric-assist bikes arriving in Milton Keynes. In December, it launched the bikes in London.
