Have you wondered about riding bikes and scooters in Salt Lake City? Bikes and scooters in Salt Lake City has become a hot topic recently and for many good reasons. Two companies Lime and Bird recently launched their scooters in downtown Salt Lake City and Green Bike has been popular for a few years now. However, many people still don’t understand how they work. Here are some details on how it works to ride bikes and scooters in Salt Lake City.
Green Bike- These popular bikes are located at docks throughout the city. You can either rent one for $7 for unlimited half-hour rides within a 24 hour time frame, or you can buy a membership for $75 for a year for unlimited 1 hour rides. This means that you need to dock your bike for at least 30 seconds every half hour or hour at one of the many docks located throughout downtown Salt Lake City. You can find them via a map, or an app that you can download on your phone. Using a green bike does require a debit or credit card. However, I believe that anyone as young as 16 can ride and a drivers license is not required.
Lime Scooters- These scooters are the ones that are white and green with a little bit of black. These require an app downloaded to your smart phone and you have to enter in payment information and verify your drivers’ license. You must also be at least 18.
Bird scooters- these all black scooters work similar to the lime scooters in that they also require you to be at least 18, have a driver’s license and to download their app.
Both lime and bird cost the same and work on a similar idea. However, I’ve heard that the lime scooters go faster.
As with all bikes, scooters and similar vehicles helmets are recommended but not required. There you go in a nutshell.
