Lime plans to add Jump bikes in other cities, starting in Rochester, Minnesota. Gradually Lime plans to launch the service in several cities around the world.

A new chance for the scooter operator

Recently selected by the city of Paris with Dott and Tier to deploy their scooters, Lime will be able to take advantage of this opportunity to promote its bicycle service. Indeed, since the deconfinement, as reported by Antoine Bluy, Lime’s head of operations at Europe 1, “trips are longer than before the confinement, and not just a little: about 40%! ». A trend that could also be seen in terms of bicycles. In order to deliver the best possible service, Lime is looking for mechanics and logistics experts.
