The third city in New Jersey launches an electric scooter sharing program
Elizabeth City Mayor Chris Polvag said that as part of Lime’s six-month pilot program, 150 GPS-enabled scooters were launched last Friday. If there are not many problems, and residents seem to like this micro-travel mode, the number will increase to 400 next year.
"In the past six months, we have had more than 500,000 trips," said Lyme's Brett Swanson.
Swanson said Lime has operations in more than 120 cities around the world.
“We have seen our scooters used by almost every age group and even everyone.” He said
According to city data, from August 2 to September 2 this year, in the first month of the pilot in Asbury Park, there were 5,806 solo drivers in the city with more than 15,000 trips. Asbury Park, in collaboration with Zagster and Spin, surveyed registered users and found that less than half were residents of Asbury Park.
The pilot phase of Asbury Park will end in June 2020.
According to Tapinto.net, New Brunswick may soon launch a plan. In October, the City Council passed a decree regulating the rules for the use of electric scooters, including fines for riders riding on sidewalks.
