New bike sharing program comes to St. Thomas University
On Wednesday, Jan. 10, lime green bikes will be taking over the STU campus! LimeBike, a new dock-less bike share program at St. Thomas, allows users to find, unlock, and rent bikes with their smartphones.
LimeBike will provide 120 bikes available for rental at various locations throughout campus, and there’s no kiosk docking station so bikes can be ridden anywhere and parked at any bike rack or designated bike parking area on campus.
The first five rides are free. After the promotional five free rides have been used, a 30-minute ride is only $.50 for STU students and employees who register using stu.edu email accounts.
A kickoff party will take place in the Convocation Hall, Jan. 10, at 12:15 p.m. On this day, bike rentals will be free of charge!
LimeBike provides a free app in the Google Play Store for Android users and the App Store for iPhone users. In the app you will find information on how to use the bikes, bike locations, promotions, and more.
*For security and safety concerns, we advise that bikes NOT be taken off campus after sundown.
