For users who find it expensive to pay for each Lime scooter trip, largely due to the equipment's unlocking price, when they make frequent use, the company has come up with a new alternative form of payment: a weekly subscription service. The company says frequent users will see a reduction in invoice as the weekly is amortized over two or three days.
It's called LimePass and has just been launched in the markets in the United States, Australia and New Zealand, but in early January the remaining territories of the globe will receive this possibility of payment. The company's goal is to facilitate access to regular customers by compensating users who depend on both electric scooters and bicycles for their daily transportation.
The main advantage of the subscription is that the unblocking of scooters is no longer charged, which is usually priced at one euro per trip for seven days following the weekly payment. Lime did not mention the weekly subscription price, mentioning that it may vary by market, but in the image illustrating the statement, the price is $ 4.99 per week. To this value add, of course, the minutes you use the scooter. In this case, for five trips in seven days, the unlocking amount is paid.
