Lime re-launches e-scooters in Plano for first time since 2018
Lime scooters have come back to Plano: The company re-launched e-scooters in Plano, marking a return since their initial entry in 2018.
According to a release, Lime launched an initial fleet of up to 100 e-scooters over the weekend and is working with the city of Plano to scale its fleet up to 250 in an organized manner over time.
Riders in Plano will be able to access the e-scooters via the Lime app and on the Uber app platform thanks to Lime’s integration with Uber.
This follows Lime's relaunch of e-scooters earlier this year in Dallas. The company previously launched scooters in Plano in 2018.
“Lime is excited to partner with the city of Plano to provide residents and visitors with a safe, affordable, and sustainable way of getting around town. We have a proven track record of success in Texas and we’re thrilled to add Plano to our list of Lone Star State cities. Shared e-scooters help connect people to existing transportation options and provide an economic boost by connecting customers to small businesses. We look forward to bringing our global experience and stability to Plano as we work with the city to envision the future of transportation together,,” said David Sedbrook, Senior Director of Government Relations at Lime.
“Coming off a record year for Lime, we are proud to have achieved an acceleration in our strong performance in 2023” said Wayne Ting, CEO of Lime. “Riders around the world are demonstrating strong demand for low-cost, reliable and emissions-free transportation. We are encouraged that cities also recognize this as they continue to welcome and expand e-bike and e-scooter programs globally. Our year-over-year revenue growth and ability to operate profitably are strong signals for the long-term viability of Lime's business. This record first half is a strong endorsement of our investments in in-house hardware design, operational excellence and cultivating strong relationships with cities.”
