Lime launches in Australia

Lime-E electric assist bikes are now available in Sydney, with the aim to help ease congestion in the city.

The new comes as the first Lime-S electric scooters launched in Australia earlier this week, less than a month after launching in Auckland and Christchurch.

On 7th November, the company announced it had officially crossed the 20 million ride threshold, “capping off a period of sustained expansion in the US, Europe and Oceania”.

This milestone came just two months after Lime reached ten million rides.

In October, Lime announced it would be offering free rides on election day in the US and on 6th November it revealed that ten per cent of all Lime trips made use of a discount code offered to help riders get to and from their polling places free of charge.

The company called it its “most successful ride promotion to date”.
