Lime and Citymapper team up to get global cities moving more sustainably following Covid-19 lockdowns
Tech | December 3, 2020 | Share
We’re delighted to announce our global partnership with Citymapper, the go-to app for city residents and visitors on the move, which will help cities drive sustainable transport recoveries as COVID-19 lockdowns ease.
Our real-time integration partnership will allow Citymapper users to easily locate Lime e-bikes and scooters in 21 major cities around the world, including London, San Francisco, Paris and Berlin.
The partnership will create a streamlined user experience to encourage more people out of their cars as they get moving again following recent lockdown measures. Users will quickly be able to find Lime e-bikes and scooters on Citymapper’s app, to help them get where they need to go in a safe, socially distant and sustainable way.
Tens of millions of commuters rely on Citymapper to get to work all over the world, with more expected as COVID-19 lockdowns ease, and the integration will encourage sustainable modes of transport as life gets closer to normal next year.
As part of the partnership, Citymapper’s “Super Duper” Pass in London will now include Lime as its exclusive electric micromobility provider. The pass is aimed at regular commuters, providing users with £10 of Lime ride credits per week - approximately 4 free rides - to seamlessly connect them to transport hubs across the UK capital, to which the Super Duper pass gives unlimited use.
Alex Thomas, Partnerships Lead at Citymapper said: “We’re excited to launch this partnership with Lime. Micro-mobility is changing how we get around cities, and COVID-19 has made alternatives like cycles and scooters an even more important part of our urban infrastructure. Users can now view their cycle and scooter trips routes alongside public transport options in the Citymapper app, and then be guided to their destination in real time with our turn-by-turn directions.”
“Citymapper has quickly become a go-to app for city residents and visitors on the move and we’re thrilled to partner with them as cities remerge from COVID-19,” said Sara Lannin, Head of Business Development at Lime. Lime will offer Citymapper users a safe, sustainable and socially-distant option to make short trips, or to combine with public transit for longer distances. This partnership will further our mission to inspire people-first cities by making it even easier to ditch the car and travel sustainably.”
