Unlike other scooters, Lime scooters are battery or electric operated and remotely monitored by a team of Lime Juicers or local staff.
Headquartered in California, U.S,.A. the Lime fleet includes electric bicycles and electric scooters in many cities of America and outside.
On Thursday, Lime made it to Google Maps, to help people travel their last mile.
The nearby motorized scooters fleet along with pedal bikes and e-bikes will now be shown as a transportation option on Google Maps when people check out the directions on transit.
Users simply need to navigate their destination on Maps and tap on the transit icon to see nearby available transit options.
If a Lime vehicle is available, the Google Maps mobile app will show how many others are nearby, or how long it’ll take to walk to the scooter, and an estimate of how much the ride will cost.
Additionally, users will also see the total journey time and ETA.
Once a scooter is located, users can tap on the Lime card to get the exact location of the vehicle and easily unlock it through the Lime app.
In the U.S., the Lime ride cost $1 to unlock and 15 cents per minute for a ride.
If you don’t have the Lime app installed, you’ll be taken to the App or Play store.
