While Los Angeles drivers were busy spending 128 hours and nearly $1,800 stuck in some of the country’s worst traffic jams, another, greener trend was beginning to take root.
It started with the first ride in June. Then the first one hundred. By January, 2019 the trend had turned into a full-fledged movement, and today the City of Angels is celebrating a milestone that places it among the most prolific micromobility markets in the world:
“3 Million rides is a huge milestone for us,” said Karla Owunwanne, Lime’s LA Community Affairs Manager. “In a city known worldwide for car congestion, we’re proud to be transforming transportation in a meaningful way.”
And all those rides add up fast. To date, Angelenos have traveled far enough on electric scooters to circle the Earth more than 153 times.
