The first batch of e-bikes appeared outside Virginia Square Metro station on Tuesday morning. More batches soon appeared around other stations, with individual bikes dispersing outward.
Scooters from both Lime and Bird have been available in Arlington for months, but Lime-E is the first dockless bikeshare to get a license in Arlington. Their permit initially allows up to 350 e-bikes, in addition to the scooters Lime operates. Each month they have the opportunity to add more bikes if certain conditions are met.
As of this writing, Lime-Es are all over the Orange Line corridor, and look to be spreading fast.
