Corona: Lime pulls back e-scooters
Lime, the platform of shared e-scooters, is removing its popular vehicles from the streets. With this measure, the company hopes to help diking in the spreading of the coronavirus. The black and green scooters will disappear from the streets in several European and American cities until further notice. “We’re putting our services on hold to make sure people stay calm and safe,” Lime explains.
Battle against corona
The company is taking the measure to contribute to the battle against the coronavirus. “It will be an unprecedented challenge for all cities and communities in the world,” the company concludes.
The use of the e-scooters will be phased out in the United States and Europe. They will only remain available in the United Arabic Emirates, Australia, South Korea, and New Zealand. The company says it will put an extra effort in the cleaning of the vehicles. Also, users will be asked to clean the shared surfaces after use.
