DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – One of North Texas’ biggest suppliers of electric scooters — Lime — has relaunched a limited fleet and is offering a discount to health care workers.
A spokesperson for the company said the goal is to help workers who might otherwise have difficulty, either because they don’t want to take public transit or rideshare or because the public transit is running with service reductions.READ MORE: Texas Officer Dies After Crash With 18-Wheeler While Responding To Emergency
A city ordinance requires that electric scooters stay on the street. They aren’t allowed on sidewalks or city trails either.
