Smart mobility for a modernized, active and environmentally friendly City.
The City of Edinburg is proud to bring Lime scooters to our residents. This will provide first- and last-mile transportation solutions, helping residents seamlessly move throughout our neighborhoods and across the community to meet their daily needs. Whether connecting to Edinburg’s vibrant downtown, riding to one of our parks, getting to the Health and Wellness Center, visiting the museum of South Texas History or borrowing a book from the Dustin Michael Sekula Library, we envision residents, students and visitors incorporating Lime scooters into their daily travel routines. Our goal is to connect our residents and visitors to reliable, safe, and active mobility.

- Wider footboard to provide better rider balance.
- Redesigned kickstand to increase vehicle stability when parked.
- Stronger and more weather-resistant aluminum frame with IP67 waterproofing against inclement weather, designed to live in the public space.

Before anyone can set up a Lime account, they must agree to Lime’s terms and conditions of use, which include the requirement for users to be 18 years or older and encourages the use of helmets. In addition, Limes displays all of Edinburg’s local laws and specific rules of the road directly in the app so users know how to correctly and safely operate scooters in the roadway.

Lime’s app has additional automated features to enable immediate reporting, including a Rapid Reporting button on the home screen and a prompt at the end of each ride for the rider to rate their trip and report any issues. After two consecutive low rated trips or any damaged vehicle report, their backend Operations System puts the vehicle in “Maintenance Mode,” making it unrentable and dispatching an Operations Team member to collect the vehicle for inspection. The majority of customer issues are responded to within 15 minutes and all issues are addressed in no more than two hours, and will be tracked and reported to the City as part of our monthly reporting.
