Mississauga's Community Hub

With car traffic being heavier than ever, the LRT in progress, The City of Mississauga is partnering with Lime Technology, Inc. and Bird Canada to launch Mississauga’s first shared system of e-bikes and e-scooters this summer. Up to 300 electric pedal-assist bicycles (e-bikes) and 900 electric kick-style scooters (e-scooters) and will be available for public use across Mississauga. With this new shared system, users will be able to travel throughout Mississauga using another mode of transportation that is fun, convenient and environmentally friendly.

For a fee which has not been announced yet and we truly hope it’s affordable, users will be able to rent e-bikes and e-scooters in Mississauga. Users will have the flexibility to park their device with flexibility at a bike rack or another designated location closest to their destination.

Geoff Wright, Commissioner, Transportation and Works says “Having a shared system of e-bikes and e-scooters was a recommendation in our Transportation Master Plan and also supports our work on climate change to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

Shared e-scooter and e-bike devices

Both partners will be providing pedal-assist e-bikes and e-scooters. Devices will be programmed with:

  • No-ride zones on sidewalks and other restricted areas.

  • Slow-ride zones on busy shared trails and areas with high foot traffic.

  • No-parking zones to ensure trips can only end in areas approved for parking.

The City has approved a three-year contract with Lime Technology, Inc. and Bird Canada. The program will be rolling out this summer and at the time of publishing, no official launch date has been announced.

Rental costs will be available closer to launch.
