Lime Marseille : A unique experience
Mis à jour : 1 sept. 2019
Today is January 19 2019 and this is an important day for the people of Marseille. Lime, the Californian company of free-floating e-scooters finally arrives to the French sun capital.
500 e-scooters are already available between the docks and the Mediterranean beaches.
A few weeks later, Lime claimed that it was the largest commercial launch in France, it overtakes even those of Paris and Lyon.
"The largest commercial launch in France"
I have been surprised to see that the first e-scooter users in Marseille were choosing Lime to take a walk: one, two or three people enjoying the Mediterranean littoral or even the numerous squares like the famous Borélyon on their Lime!
It is well-known that the people of Marseille don’t respect a lot of laws, like the legal age to use the Lime e-scooter or wearing a helmet, etc.
Many parents paid several hours of Lime-use for their children so that they can enjoy the sun and the beach in peace. A paradox in the poorest big city of the country, especially if we take into account that the price for a unlocked Lime is 10€ for one hour.
So, I understand why Lime spoke of “success” about this launch!
