LimeBike celebrates successful first week in South Bend

(Caleigh Bougeois/ABC 57)

The first week of a bike-sharing system in South Bend has been declared a success, and now the city of South Bend wants to give you a reason to get on a LimeBike.

LimeBike officials tell ABC 57 that over 2,500 people downloaded their app over the weekend. Right now, there’s 183 bikes operating in the city, with plans of over 500 by the end of July.

On average, one bike got used twice a day over the weekend, where rides were free.

In a stroke of good timing, South Bend will be starting an effort to get its residents in shape.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg will kick off the weekly walk and bike ride around downtown South Bend at 12:15 p.m. Thursday with a walk starting and ending at the Century Center canopy.

The weekly walks will run about a half hour every Thursday starting at 12:15 p.m, with walks and bike rides alternating every week.
