    You’ll soon be unable to get a “Lime Bike” in the city of Hartford.

    The city is cutting ties with the bike-sharing company, though officials haven’t given an exact end date. The bikes first hit the streets in June 2018, and were available to ride throughout Hartford and neighboring towns for $1 per half hour.

    Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin plans to seek proposals to partner with another bike-sharing company.

    Scott Mullen, director of Northeast expansion for Lime, provided the following statement.

    “In the coming weeks, we will be phasing out Lime bikes through the greater Hartford region. Riders should be sure to check the app for the location of the nearest vehicle.”
