2nd scooter company rolls out sharing service in Providence

PROVIDENCE — A second electric scooter company has parked its dock-free sharable scooters in the capital city.

The Silicon Valley based Lime rolled out 150 scooters in the city as Bird scooters also returned, bringing the number in the city to its cap of 300.

“Lime is thrilled that Providence’s residents and visitors are so eager to hop on our dock-free e-scooters,” said Scott Mullen, Lime director of expansion in New England. “Providence is scooting its way toward becoming a city with accessible, affordable, green transportation options for all.”

Costs are $1 to unlock and 15 cents a minute to ride, with a maximum assist speed of 14.8 mph. Through LimeAccess, those who qualify and can prove low-income status through proof of government assistance or utility-bill discounts will pay only 50 cents to unlock and 7 cents a minutes to ride.
