Boomerdrive Access


At Lime, we believe in providing mobility for all. That’s why we’ve created Lime Access – an affordable way to use Lime in your city. We’re also proud to partner with PayNearMe in the United States and to support a text-to-unlock feature, both of which promote equitable mobility by removing the barrier of smartphone and credit card ownership.

To qualify for Lime Access, an individual simply needs to demonstrate eligibility or participation in any local, state or federally-run assistance program.

Lime Access members receive the following pricing:

For Lime-S electric scooters and Lime-E electric-assist bikes:
$0.50 to unlock, $0.07 per minute (a 50% discount)
For Lime pedal bikes:
$0.05 for each 30 minutes (more than 95% discount)
Once you’ve joined Lime Access, you can also pay using cash at one of PayNearMe’s 27,000+ retail locations.

Qualifying is simple. Simply click on the button below to quickly and securely submit your information. A Lime representative will get back to you within 2 business days with any next steps and further information.

All we need is:

  1. Full Name
  2. Phone Number (this number should be for the phone you plan to use for Lime)
  3. Valid government-issued photo ID
  4. Proof of low income status (e.g. EBT card, discounted utility bill, or any other state or federally-run assistance program document)

Any questions? Email us at
Please note: Lime Access is currently only available for US customers. We hope to expand the program soon!

Once qualified for Lime Access, you will receive a PayNearMe payment code. To complete payment:

  3. Keep your receipt as proof of payment.
