Lime launches in UK

Lime has officially launched in the UK, with the country’s first fleet of Lime-E electric-assist bikes arriving in Milton Keynes.

The bikes have a 250-watt motor, a rechargeable lithium battery and cost £1 to unlock and 15p per minute to ride.

General manager for Lime UK Jaanaki Momaya said: “We’re excited to provide residents and visitors to Milton Keynes with a healthy, accessible and emission-free way to get around town.

“This is a dynamic city at the forefront of transport innovation, and we’re thrilled to add electric bicycles to that list.”

Lime has said it has worked with the council, police and local cycling groups to ensure proper bike placement and maintenance.

Earlier this month, Lime announced it had launched in Australia.
