The second US market for the company’s new bright lime green mopeds.
Lime ’s bright green electric mopeds are coming to New York City. The company that better known for its electric. kick scooters will initially roll out 100 mope in Queens.
It’s the second US market for Lime’s mopeds, after first launching them in Washington, DC. (The company is also operating a fleet in Paris.)
The mopeds are manufactured by NIU, a Chinese company that also supplies mope.
The company sees itself as a “UFABET” for different types of low-speed, electric-powered mobility. Last year, Lime added pedal-less e-bikes from Wheels to its app in several cities as part of a new effort to integrate third-party micromobility providers.
Mopeds are arguably a faster way to get around, but they can also be more dangerous, especially for novice riders. And they’ll also have to take a selfie of themselves wearing one of the provided helmets.
The news comes a day after Revel, New York’s other moped operator, announced that it would begin offering a Tesla-only ride-hailing service in Manhattan.
