BOSTON, MA (09/16/2019) (readMedia)-- Lime kicked off a ride heard round the world, reaching its 100 million ride this week. Lime serves over 120 cities globally, in 20 countries across five continents. In Metro-Boston, Lime bikes and scooters play their part in creating a less congested transportation ecosystem and a cleaner, healthier city. With a connected bikeshare program in 13 towns around greater Boston and a thriving scooter pilot in Brookline, Lime is making urban life more liveable.
Worldwide, approximately 1 in every 4 of Lime bike or scooter trip replaced a car trip. Globally, Lime estimates its riders avoided approximately 25 million miles of car travel and prevented 9,000 metric tons of carbon emissions.
