Venture-capital backed bike-share tech firm LimeBike eyes Missoula launch

March 5, 2018View for printing

A bicycle- and electric scooter-sharing tech company called LimeBike is looking at entering the Missoula market and has sent representatives to meet with city and University of Montana officials.

LimeBike , popular in cities like Seattle and Austin, allows customers to rent its bikes for $1 per hour and leave them anywhere. Using a smartphone app, you can find bikes near you, unlock one and be on your way.

Unlike other bike-sharing companies, the bike locks its back tires when you're done, so there's no need for docking stations or your own bike lock. In theory, if you ride to a place that's busy with commuters and someone takes your bike while you're in a coffee shop, you should be able to find another one nearby.
