3 Foot Passing Law

“The operator of a vehicle overtaking another vehicle shall pass to the left at a safe distance and shall not again drive to the right until safely clear of the overtaken vehicle. When a motor vehicle overtakes and passes a bicycle, three feet or greater is considered a safe passing distance.”

The bike and scooter sharing options in Cleveland change from time to time - it's the the nature of the industry. But choice is good, and having options and easy availability makes moving around car-free convenient. The information on this page can change regularly, and sometimes vendors add in or remove availability. Scooter and bike riders should ride in the street with the flow of traffic, using bike lanes where possible.

Here is a rundown of your current options:

| Bicycles |

Bikes are active 24hrs per day.

Lime: e-Bikes, Top Speed = 20mph > Lime App Android || iPhone

Bird: e-Bikes, Top Speed = 20mph > Bird Ride App Android || iPhone

| Scooters |

Note that under the updated permit, scooters are now active from 5am-11pm.

Bird: Top Speed = 15mph > Bird Ride App Android || iPhone

Lime: Top Speed = 15mph > Lime App Android || iPhone

These companies also have programs in place for riders without smartphones and/or credit cards. These programs are outlined on our Equity & Access page.

More information about the program can be found on the city's Dockless Scooter and Bike Share page.

For all of these bicycles and devices, the same City parking guidelines are in place:

Riders may park scooters or bikes anywhere on the sidewalk in the "furniture zone," as long access for others is not blocked. The furniture zone is the area between the curb and the walkway where there may already be trash cans, bus stops, benches and bike racks.

Riders are encouraged to keep an eye out to avoid blocking:

  • The pedestrian walkway
  • Bus stops and shelters
  • Doorways and emergency exits
  • Fire hydrants and standpipes
  • Driveways and sidewalk ramps

Scooters and bikes should never be parked in the roadway and should always be left standing upright.
