Phoenix launched its permanent Shared Micromobility Program on January 20, 2023.
Program vendors Lime and Spin offer an inventory of e-scooters, e-bikes, traditional pedal bikes and adaptive bikes.
Various vendors had operated e-scooters in downtown Phoenix since September 2019 as part of a city-managed pilot program. On December 14, 2022, City Council authorized the Street Transportation Department to finalize an agreement with Lime and Spin to be the official vendors when the pilot program ended in January 2023.
The E-Scooter Pilot Program was popular with the community, with more than 330,000 trips logged.
Shared Micromobility Program FAQ
Learn more about the program:
- The program boundary has been expanded beyond the downtown area. The initial expansion offers an option to neighborhoods south and east of downtown. Future expansions will be considered.
- Vendors are allowed to operate from 5 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. daily. From 12 a.m. to 4:59 a.m., all vehicles can remain in the public right-of-way, but vendors must make them non-operational.
- The no-ride zones will remain and extend to the Capitol Mall area and all city parks within the program boundary. Riders will be notified when they have entered a no-ride zone and motorized micromobility vehicles will be disabled until the rider leaves the no-ride zone.
- Vendors offer options for individuals with disabilities. Visit Lime Assist or Spin to request an adaptive micromobility vehicle, which meet various needs.
- Each vendor will be allowed to deploy up to 1,500 vehicles for a total of 3,000 within the program boundary. At least 20 percent of their fleet must be a mix of traditional bikes and e-bikes.
- The city has designated areas within the program boundary as Equity Zones, where historical disinvestment has resulted in a lack of transportation and economic opportunity. The vendors will be required to deploy 30 percent of their fleet within Equity Zones. Discounted rates will automatically apply for trips beginning in Equity Zones.
