Lime has introduced a new kind of package: the Unlimited Pass, billed at 39 euros per month to enjoy unlimited rides up to 45 minutes on Lime JUMP bikes and electric scooters.
The scooter and electric bicycle operator Lime is drawing a new subscription already available on its mobile application: the Unlimited Pass, which the company has launched at a price of 39 euros per month. This pass gives you unlimited access to trendy JUMP bikes and Lime scooters, for 45 minutes of use. After this time, per-minute pricing will take over.
Reservation and no fees
Also, no unlocking fees will be applied to the beneficiary. The latter can finally reserve a machine up to 30 minutes before its release. So much for the main information to remember about this new offer which could at first glance raise questions. Why launch an unlimited package in full confinement, when teleworking is once again generalized, as the President of the Republic Emmanuel Macron has decreed.
The general manager of Lime in Paris, in the person of Antoine Bluy, justifies this offensive in a press release.
With a new unlimited plan, we want to offer all Parisian users the possibility of going to work, shopping or traveling for emergencies thanks to soft mobility for 30 days, at less cost and without constraint.
The interested party continues: “In view of the current situation, we want to help improve the situation in France as quickly as possible. As a market leader, we can do it, because we have 5,000 scooters and 2,000 electric bikes in the capital. ».
An unlimited package … limited to confinement
Reached by phone by the editorial staff, Lime told us that this unlimited package is for the moment only implemented during confinement, in intramural Paris and La Défense. If it is successful with users, then the group should perpetuate it over the coming months.
Lime is not the first service to experiment with an unlimited plan: its competitor Tier also has one at a price of 39 euros per month.
