Riders in these areas now have access to a second active and sustainable transport option via the app with Lime’s electric bikes already available on the platform.
Lime e-scooters are now available for hire via the Uber app for riders in London and Milton Keynes.
The micromobility company is currently operating as part of the government-backed e-scooter trials in these areas.
The news comes as Lime recently celebrated one million e-scooter rides and five million e-bike rides in the UK.
Two wheel options
The integration with e-scooters provides riders with a second active and sustainable transport option via the Uber app with Lime’s e-bikes already available on the platform.
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.
“Working closely with our partners at Uber we have been able to integrate and make our services available to even more riders, which will help encourage active and sustainable journeys and reduce congestion”
To access Lime e-scooters or e-bikes on the Uber app, users visit the “two wheels” option on the home page and select the rental that is closest to them on the map. Prices start at £1 to unlock and between 15 pence and 19 pence per minute to ride. Lime’s vehicles can also be accessed via the dedicated Lime app.
“The last 12 months has shown a real appetite for shared e-scooter and e-bikes services in London,” said Alex Krasnoff, business development at Lime. “Usage is at an all-time high and this trend is only set to continue with spring and summer around the corner.
“We’re also very excited to launch our Gen 4 e-bikes in London in the coming months. Like our current red e-bikes, they will be available for hire via the Uber app and Londoners will be some of the first riders outside of the US that will get the chance to try out our new and improved Lime-green ride.”
