Lime-S Scooters

 Campus Rules to Follow

  • Helmets are not required, but are strongly encouraged to be worn for the rider’s safety.
  • Lime-S scooters must stay on The University of Toledo property and are not approved for off-campus use at this time. A geo-fence has been installed to notify users when the scooter is out of bounds.
  • Scooter riders shall comply with all applicable state motor vehicle laws, official traffic control devices, and signs including posted signs prohibiting riding in a particular designated location.
  • Riders are expected to use good judgement and common sense when riding scooters on campus. Scooter riding is at one’s own risk and should never be operated in a manner that creates a safety risk for others.
  • The rider must ride the device in a controlled manner and exercise care and caution to prevent injury to other, self, or to property.
  • As a reminder, pedestrians have priority right of way and scooters are required to yield to pedestrian traffic.
  • The University may identify, by appropriate signage, locations in which scooter riding is prohibited either permanently or during certain times.
  • Scooter riders may dismount and walk the scooter across any pedestrian accessible area in which scooter riding is prohibited.
  • Only one person per Lime-S scooter may ride at one time.
  • Use of scooters for other purposes (i.e. tricks, jumps, rail sliding, etc.) is not permitted.
  • Scooters may not be ridden in any building or parking structure.
  • Scooters may not be charged on any UT campus.
  • Scooters shall be ridden on approved bicycle routes and campus roads.
  • When riding downhill, riders are encouraged to use care and reduce speed to maintain control of the device.
  • Scooters shall be parked on campus in an upright position with the kickstand down and in such a manner that does not obstruct the flow of pedestrian traffic. Specifically, a scooter must not be parked in automobile parking spaces, on lawn areas, shrub or flowerbeds, streets, driveways, stairs or in any building.
  • This also includes pedestrian public ways, entrance ways to buildings, or places that hinder pedestrian travel.

Riding the Lime-S scooter is a voluntary choice of the rider and is a relationship between the rider and Lime scooter, not with the University. These regulations are designed to encourage and promote safe operation of the scooters on the UT campuses.
