Lime Temporarily Shuts Down in CA, WA and Some European Counties to Slow Coronavirus
Lime is pausing its e-scooter and e-bike services in California, Washington, Italy, France, and Spain, starting Tuesday. The company said the closures are intended to slow the spread of COVID-19.
In Lime's remaining markets, the company is expanding its cleaning procedures and recommending riders wipe down scooters and bikes or wear gloves.
"Like you, we are worried about the cities we love and call home, the people we serve, and our colleagues on the ground," Lime said in a blog post. "Loving cities means protecting them too. For now, we're pausing Lime service to help people stay put and stay safe."
Uber said Tuesday it will suspend pooled rides in North America and Lyft is suspending shared rides in all markets in response to the pandemic.
