Lime has launched 100 electric scooters in the Brookline area of Boston, US.
It hopes the roll-out will help change current legislation which prohibits electric scooters from operating in Massachusetts.
Brookline sits on the border of several Boston neighbourhoods including Fenway-Kenmore and is home to around 6,000 residents.
The project comes hot on the heels of Boston city council’s vote to create new guidelines for electric scooters, which - according to Lime - is an indication that the city is watching this trial to facilitate a pilot of its own.
Scott Mullen, Lime director for northeast expansion, says: “Lime has been working in tandem with the Brookline Select Board, which has taken the lead in Massachusetts to provide these new micromobility options.”
