E-scooter sharing company Lime offers free 30-minute rides for health professionals and law enforcement officers and has decided to reactivate a small fleet of scooters in a few cities. The initiative aims to meet the essential needs of workers for transport, while social distancing amid the corona virus crises.
“Micromobility plays a critical role in seamlessly moving people around cities, and as an individual form of transportation, scooters can help close an integral transportation gap at this important time,” The Verge quoted the company’s statement. The company mentioned that the scooters are only for essential purposes, such as trips to the grocery store or the doctor’s office.
The company plans to launch the E-scooter service in the first series of cities, including Austin, Baltimore, Columbus, Dallas, Nashville, Norfolk, Va., Oklahoma City, Salt Lake City, and Washington DC, as well as bringing it to Berlin and Cologne in Germany and Paris, France; Rimini, Italy; and Tel Aviv, Israel.
