Sandy City and the Utah Transit Authority have partnered with Lime to launch a 90-day electric scooter (e-scooter) pilot program in downtown Sandy, Utah. Through this pilot, 200 Lime e-scooters are available for use around the Cairns District. Scooters can be rented through the Lime app and ridden any time between 5am and midnight. The Lime app will indicate the location and remaining battery life of available scooters. Scooters cost $1 to unlock and $0.25 per minute to ride. Sandy City’s Lime Scooter Guide states that scooters should be ridden only on streets with a speed limit of 35 miles per hour or lower and parked courteously. This partnership aims to improve first/last mile mobility and help to reduce both congestion and air pollution.
