Lime Bike now has a bike share system in a Native American community. "The dockless bike-share company will launch in the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony, as part of a larger northern Nevada regional partnership that will also bring bikes to the University of Nevada, Reno and a handful of cities," Eillie Anzilotti reports for Fast Company. "The Reno-Sparks Indian Colony is situated not too far outside the cities of Reno and Sparks, and tribal leaders told Lime that they’re looking forward to the opportunity to reduce automobile traffic and boost mobility for residents," Anzilotti adds.

There are 570 Native American tribes in the United States. If this system is successful, Lime says they are likely to seek to include other Native American communities.
