Understanding the Red Zone in the Lime App

When using the Lime app to locate and rent electric scootersWhen using the Lime app to locate and rent electric scooters, users may encounter areas marked in red on the map—these are commonly referred to as red zones. It's essential for riders to understand what a red zone signifies to ensure compliance with local regulations and Lime's usage guidelines.

The red zone in the Lime app indicates areas where parking or riding Lime electric scooters is restricted or prohibited. These zones are typically established in collaboration with city authorities and may represent high-traffic pedestrian areas, private properties, or locations where city regulations restrict the use of electric scooters.

Riding in a red zone can lead to several consequences:

  1. The scooter could slow down or come to a stop, depending on the level of restriction imposed by the geofence technology.

  2. Users might not be able to end their ride session within a red zone, necessitating the relocation of the scooter to an approved parking area.

  3. Continuous violation of red zone restrictions could result in penalties or the suspension of the user's Lime account.

To avoid these issues, Lime app users are advised to always check the map for red zones before starting their journey and to plan routes accordingly. Additionally, it's important to be aware of updates to the Lime app map as red zones can change based on local regulations and events.

Responsible use of electric scooters is crucial for the sustainability of micromobility services. By understanding and respecting red zones, Lime riders contribute to keeping the service running smoothly and maintaining a good relationship with the communities in which Lime operates.
