Micromobility company Lime is now providing its e-scooters for use in London and Milton Keynes via the Uber app.
Lime says the launch of its e-scooter services will now provide riders on the platform with a second active and sustainable transport option as its e-bikes are already available for hire via the app.
Alex Krasnoff, business development at Lime said: “The last 12 months has shown a real appetite for shared e-scooter and e-bikes services in London, with Lime recently celebrating its one million and five million ride milestones in the region on e-scooters and e-bikes respectively. Usage is at an all-time high and this trend is only set to continue with spring and summer around the corner.
“Working closely with our partners at Uber we have been able to integrate and make oeur services available to even more riders, which will help encourage active and sustainable journeys and reduce congestion. We’re also very excited to launch our Gen 4 e-bikes in London in the coming months.”
Annie Duvnjak, global micromobility general manager at Uber said: “Uber is thrilled to expand its Micromobility Services in London through our Lime partnership. Uber remains committed to bringing access to affordable, convenient, and sustainable transportation options to our customers.”
Riders will need to provide valid proof of identification and complete a one-time virtual safety test on the Uber app in order to unlock and ride Lime’s e-scooters for the first time.
