HOBOKEN SCOOTER PILOT REACHES GLOBAL-HIGH IN RIDERSHIP AFTER THREE WEEKS
With 21,500 unique riders taking more than 66,500 trips, more than a third of Hoboken’s population has used a Lime e-scooter
Hoboken, NJ – Lime’s e-scooters continue to roll at record rates in Hoboken. Since Lime—the leading U.S. smart mobility company—rolled out its e-scooter pilot program in Hoboken three weeks ago, more than 21,500 unique riders have taken more than 66,500 rides—the highest ridership per scooter in Lime’s markets around the world over that period. The 21,500 unique riders equates to more than a third of the population of Hoboken, highlighting how rapidly scooters have grown to become a core part of the city’s transportation network. The first week of the pilot was also the highest Lime ridership per scooter in the world.
“The popularity of e-scooters in Hoboken has been astounding,” said Phil Jones, Senior Director of East Coast Government Relations and Strategic Partnerships at Lime. “E-scooters are changing the way people commute and are reducing the dependence on cars in the Mile Square City. Lime’s resounding success in Hoboken is proof that the rest of the Tri-State area would benefit from having greater access to affordable, reliable, and sustainable micro-mobility options.”
Lime, the City of Hoboken, and Hoboken Police Department are working closely together on educating riders on how to ride scooters safely and properly. You can learn more about how to ride a Lime scooter here.
