E-scooter app Lime introduces 'group ride' feature in UAE

Urban mobility provider Lime has announced a new ‘group ride’ feature in the UAE, allowing users to unlock 5 scooters on one account.

Lime users in Abu Dhabi will be able to access the group ride directly through the Lime app on their iOS and Android devices.

Each user, however, will have to abide by the company’s rules and regulations, which include wearing a helmet, not carrying passengers and respecting pedestrians.

“Now with our new Group Ride feature, many of our Lime riders can easily and safely share the joys and benefits of sustainable, accessible micro-mobility with their friends and family members. “We believe this feature will simplify the experience for prospective riders looking to try our scooters,” said Mohamad Nsouli, General Manager of Lime in the UAE.

To access the feature, riders can simply tap the Group Ride button directly on the Lime map screen and then follow the step-by-step prompts. Guest rides can be started and/or ended at any time from the host account.

Lime - which is active in 50 cities across 20 countries in Europe, the Middle East and Asia – began operating in Abu Dhabi at the end of November 2019.

The firm began operations in the UAE capital with a fleet of 300 scooters along the 8 km-long Corniche.

Lime joined Berlin-based Circ which was the first to deploy e-scooters in the UAE capital in September.
