Continuing its commitment to safety, today Lime, partnering with the LAPD, kicked off its inaugural LA “First Ride Academy.” First time Lime riders joined Lime representatives to learn how to safely operate and ride scooters. The event is the start of First Ride Academies that will be held over the next several weeks. These training courses will improve familiarity with scooters so riders know the basics of safe scooter riding and responsible parking.
Lime is partnered with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Wilshire Division to host the inaugural event at Wilshire’s Bike with a Cop Sunday Funday at Melrose Trading Post (Fairfax High School).

Kirby. “We have seen Lime’s commitment to safe riding and parking and we are pleased to have Lime partner in our efforts and to join us today for our Bike with a Cop event.”
