Lime announced today that it has partially resumed its operations in Prague.
Out of the 1,500 scooters that normally operate in the Czech capital, 200 have so far been re-deployed in the streets, said Ondřej Široký, the company’s operations manager.
Lime will also offer free 30-minute scooter rides for public-health workers and law enforcement officers, who can receive access simply by signing up.
“Micro mobility plays a critical role in moving people seamlessly through cities, and as an individual form of transportation, scooters can help fill an integral transportation gap at this important time,” Lime wrote in a statement.
Lime will provide in-app reminders of its “THRIVE” health and safety best practices, including:
- Take precautions – inspect the scooter to make sure the wheels, brakes, throttle, lights, and frame are all in good working condition
- Hands – wash your hands or use hand sanitizer which is at least 60 percent alcohol-based when you arrive at your final destination. Wear gloves when you can
- Ride Solo for safety and social distancing; maintain a distance of at least six feet from others
- Identify bike lanes and be aware of traffic lights and signs
- Vigilance – remain alert of your surroundings and potential road and safety hazards
- Essential rides only – scooter rides are for essential travel only, such as the grocery store, pharmacy or for healthcare purposes. No joyriding, and please follow your city’s shelter-in-place orders.
Lime will offer free 30-minute rides for health care workers and law enforcement officers in the following cities: Austin, Baltimore, Columbus, Dallas, Nashville, Norfolk, Va., Oklahoma City, Salt Lake City, Washington D.C, Berlin, Cologne, Paris, Rimini, and Tel Aviv.
