North Shore residents, by and large, don't seem to mind a slice of Lime.
A year after the Lime e-bike sharing program launched in North Vancouver, North Shore residents overwhelmingly approve of their addition to the local transportation scene (even though most of us have yet to go for a spin).
North Shore News polled 1,223 readers and asked the question: What is your opinion of Lime Bikes on the North Shore?
The poll ran from July 27 to Aug. 5. Of the 1,223 votes, we can determine that 559 are from within the community. The full results are as follows:
According to the company, which has now expanded into West Vancouver, about 11,000 people have taken almost 54,000 trips since the pilot launch here, for a total of nearly 110,000 kilometres ridden on the North Shore. Lime calculates that as the equivalent of 13,000 car trips, that would have burned 2,500 litres of gas and emitted six metric tonnes of carbon.
Results are based on an online study of adult North Shore News readers that are located in North Vancouver and West Vancouver. The margin of error - which measures sample variability - is +/- 2.79%, 19 times out of 20.
