The popular bikes’ return to Sacramento and West Sacramento comes after Lime’s acquisition of the Jump brand in May. Lime says it’s immediately putting 200 bikes on city streets and will roll out up to 600 bikes based on rider demand.

The bikes will initially be available through the Lime app. They will return to the Uber app in the next few weeks and will eventually be available through either app.

“The relaunch of bike-share in the region is key to helping us reach our climate action and equity goals related to transportation,” Sacramento Vice Mayor Jeff Harris said in a prepared statement. “As our community gradually reopens, it’s imperative that we have clean, accessible, and reliable transportation alternatives that make it easy for people to leave their cars at home. Bike-share is a fun, safe, and convenient way to get around our city.”
