Lime e-scooters is integrated with Uber app in London and Milton Keynes

Lime e-scooters are now available to hire on the Uber app in both London and Milton Keynes, where trials of its e-scooters are taking place.

The news comes as Lime recently celebrated one million e-scooter rides and five million e-bike rides in the UK.

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.

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.

“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.

“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.

“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.”
