Several mobility options arrived in San Diego seemingly overnight. To the surprise of many communities, bike and scooter rentals suddenly appeared on sidewalks throughout the city. These are now on nearly every corner, making getting around a breeze. Whether their unbelievable low pricing will remain past their introduction to our fine city or not remains to be seen, but for now LimeBike, Ofo Bike, Lime Scooters and Bird Scooters are keeping people happily moving.
Lime Bike & Ofo Bike
Green or Yellow? Either is fine for this Brazilian. Colorful and easy to spot, to use either of these bike rentals you download the app, register an account and add a credit card. The bikes use bluetooth to communicate the authorization with your phone and unlock the bike to start your trip. If there’s an issue with the bluetooth unlock it will give you an authorization code to input on the bike. Tell the app when you’re done with your trip and make sure to engage the lock to end it. It really couldn’t be easier.
Bird & Lime Scooters
Both of San Diego’s electric scooters get folks around quickly without much effort. Why peddle when you can stand? Be sure to follow all traffic laws and be careful of pedestrians.
