Lime and TheFork have announced that they have formed a new partnership in order to facilitate and support Melbourne restaurants and cafes with the Dine on a Lime.
People can rediscover the city’s hospitality scene with discounted e-bike rides to and from the restaurant while earning extra loyalty points towards their account with TheFork.
When riders make a booking through TheFork, they will receive a code for a 50% discount on two e-bike trips, that is to travel to and from the restaurant.
In addition, when users book through TheFork app, they will earn 500 Yums (normally 150) on their account with TheFork (when a user reaches 1000 Yums, they receive $20 off their bill).
Hugo Burt-Morris, the General Manager of Australia and New Zealand at Lime is buoyant.
“We offered safe and sustainable transport in the pandemic and now that lockdowns have ended we want to help Melbourners and visitors to rediscover what they love about our city.”
“We are thrilled to partner with TheFork to support local businesses and get Melbourne moving again. We encourage everyone to Dine on a Lime this summer.”
Gary Burrows, the Country Manager of TheFork Australia also said, “We are excited to partner with Lime to connect Melbourne residents with their next great dining experience.”
“Our hospitality industry has seen a tough year but with Dine on Lime we hope to see people supporting local restaurants to discover more of the venues Melbourne has to offer.”
TheFork is the leading online reservation site in Australia, Europe, and Latin America, giving users access to over 1000of Melbourne’s best eateries in an easy to use platform.
To take advantage of Dine on a Lime, users can book their reservations through TheFork to receive a code that will get them 50% off rides to and from the restaurant.
Users will also earn 500 Yums, TheFork’s loyalty rewards program, when they book through TheFork app. Yums can be accumulated and used for up to $50 off a future meal.
Lime has helped cities around the world get moving again as the pandemic has entered new stages and is looking forward to doing so in Melbourne.
In September, Lime launched its “Lime Access” scheme across Australia, providing discounted rides of at least 50% for riders with a valid Services Australia Health Care Card, making a $450,000 investment in equity for riders in Australia and New Zealand.
Lime also launched its Ride to Recovery initiative in Melbourne in September, a global push to help cities get moving again by encouraging Lime riders to get vaccinated.
Lime committed $50,000 to this campaign in Australia and New Zealand. Lime will continue looking for ways to support Melbourne SMBs and the city’s economic recovery.
