South Sioux City considering bike-sharing service LimeBike
Michelle Kuester
Dakota County Star Editor

Following suit with Sioux City, South Sioux City is considering bringing the bike-sharing service LimeBike to the area. There would be no cost to the city for the service.

LimeBike is a service that provides dock-less smart bikes that can be rented using a smartphone app. Riders can locate a bike using the app and pay one dollar for 30 minutes of usage. There are no docking stations; riders simply leave the bikes where they are when they are finished using them.

The bikes are equipped with GPS and wheel-locking technology to prevent theft. Once the rider pays the dollar using their phone, the wheels unlock and they can ride the bike. The service is intended to promote fitness and green transportation.

Gene Maffit, South Sioux City Parks Director, told the city council that the only potential negative he sees is if people leave the bikes in inconvenient places.

“South Sioux City has been really proactive on our trail system and we're a bicycle-friendly community,” Maffit said.
