TAMPA, FL – On Saturday, Lime, the electric scooter rental provider in Tampa, will host a demonstration of its award-winning electric bike and a new improved scooter model at 10 a.m. at Portico, 1001 N. Florida Ave.
Lime is offering to bring his new scooter to serve Tampa residents as part of the city’s selection process for the next phase of its micromobility program. The new Gen 3 scooter that Lime will present features improved brakes, suspension, handling and shock absorption.
WellBuilt Bikes, a social enterprise organization that trains homeless Floridians to build and repair bikes, then donates the bike for free, and Pedal Power Promoters will join the protest.
Lime has named WellBuilt Bikes as a Lime Hero partner, which means riders will be able to round up the cost of their rides to improve mobility for those less fortunate in Tampa.
As part of the demonstration, Lime will also be offering a First Ride Safety Course to residents of Tampa. Lime’s signature First Ride courses help new and inexperienced riders learn about electric scooters in a low-stress environment. The course includes safety tips and a short riding lesson to cover acceleration, braking, cornering and responsible parking.
Tampa began offering its electric scooter rental program in May 2019.
