Widening Access to Micromobility: Understanding Use of a Reduced-Fare Program in Three Countries

Researchers surveyed Lime riders in a dozen cities across three countries: Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. By assessing the usage patterns and personal characteristics of both Lime Access and non-Access riders, researchers compared the two groups to identify key differences. They identified four main themes from both quantitative survey responses and qualitative open-ended feedback:

  1. Lime Access riders depend on Lime to make everyday, essential trips.

  2. Lime Access in combination with public transit supports a car-light or car-free life.

  3. Lime Access can provide an essential option for travelers with disabilities.

  4. Lime Access users love the program and want to see it expanded.
