Bike Share

Bike share officially arrived in Bellevue in late July 2018. Green, electric-assisted bikes are available for use citywide on streets, bike lanes, and sidewalks as part of a one-year pilot.

The bikes are owned and operated by Lime, a private company that obtained a permit to use the public right-of-way to provide bike share services subject to specific conditions. These include requirements related to safety, parking, operations, data sharing, and other topics.

The City does not own or operate the system. To obtain a permit, Lime paid a fee that reimburses the City for various one-time and ongoing costs associated with the Transportation Department managing the pilot.

For details about Bellevue’s bike share pilot and the conditions of Lime’s permit, refer to the links below.

This webpage will be updated frequently. Check back soon for more information about where to park, how the pilot is being evaluated, and more.​
