Answers to a few FAQ’s:

Q:  How much does it cost?            
A:  $1.00 to unlock and $0.15 every minute to ride.

Q:  Do I need to wear a helmet?
A:   Arkansas Helmet Laws do not require a helmet. Lime always recommends you wear 
       a helmet, but helmets are not included with each scooter.

Q:  How do I know how much battery is left on a scooter?
A:  Just tap the Lime-S icon within the app to view available battery life.

Q:  If I ride a Lime to my destination, can I lock it down so it’s still there for me when I’m                              
      ready to leave?
A:  Yes! Just pause the ride while at your location to ensure the scooter is there for you 
      when you are ready.  Keep in mind that you are charged the $0.15 per minute fee 
      during pause mode, so this is great for picking up take-out or coffee.  Maybe not so
      much for dinner or drinks out.
