Shared Micromobility Program

The City of Tampa has engaged with three leading providers in shared micromobility (LIME, SPIN, & Helbiz) to provide eBikes and eScooters throughout the City. The eBicycles and eScooters will allow people to quickly and easily travel short distances and help commuters access public transit stops that may be several miles away. These eBicycles and eScooters can replace short-distance car trips which help reduce traffic levels and improve downtown mobility. The objective of Tampa’s Shared Micromobility Program is to provide a method of transportation to enhance how people get around and address the “first-mile/last-mile” needs of Tampa commuters.  

There are three vendors currently providing services in the City of Tampa –Lime, Spin, and Helbiz.
