What are bike share and scooter share services?
Bike share and scooter share services let you rent the nearest available electric bike or foot scooter and ride it to where you want to go. Once you complete your trip, be sure to park your rental out of pedestrian and transit paths and ready for the next rider, and look out for preferred parking areas on the bike share and scooter share apps. Local bike share and scooter share services include Bird, Lime, LINK and Veo. Stay safe by wearing a helmet and following local rules for scooters and bikes. If you qualify for ORCA LIFT or the Regional Reduced Fare Permit (RRFP), you likely qualify for rides at a reduced cost (PDF).

Frequently asked questions
You can download the Bird, Lime, LINK or Veo app and create an account to rent a bike share or scooter share vehicle. If you do not have a smart phone, each company provides other ways to access bikes and scooters. Please note that discounted trips on Link scooters are not currently available through this pilot.
After taking a qualifying trip, Bird, Lime, LINK and Veo will provide offers for free transit tickets and opportunities to earn Transit Go Rewards points by taking surveys about your experience connecting to transit by bike share and scooter share. You will need to download the Transit GO Ticket app and register for the Transit GO Rewards program in order to access these tickets and surveys.
To get your $8 discount or credit on a qualifying trip, just rent a scooter share or bike share from Bird, Lime, LINK or Veo and end your trip within the boundaries of the areas shown on the map. Every week throughout the pilot, after taking at least one qualifying trip, the service provider on which you took the trip will send an email, text, or in-app notification with an offer for free mobile transit tickets on the Transit GO Ticket app, and chances to win Transit Go Rewards points.
Be sure to park your bike or scooter upright at a bike rack, bike share or scooter share corral, or along the curb while leaving at least six feet around for pedestrians to pass. Keep bus stops and bus shelters clear to allow for fellow transit riders to get on and off the bus. Do not leave your bike or scooter in parking stalls at park and rides.
Check for preferred parking locations. These will be marked on each app’s map and are places where it is safe to park a bike or scooter and allows others to easily find a bike or scooter for their next trips.
