INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A second company running scooter rentals may soon be back on the streets of Indianapolis.
Lime has filed a permit applciation.
A spokeswoman said the company hopes to relaunch with 1,800 scooters. She said that total could change based on rider demand.
Both companies appeared in Indianapolis this spring and summer before a permit system was established by city officials.
Many in Indianapolis were excited about the new eco-friendly way to get around. But, many also were concerned about the dockless scooters being a hazard on the roadways and possibly causing accidents.
The companies removed their scooters from the streets after the city issued cease-and-desist orders as it worked out a permit system. The city is charging companies $15,000 a year and a dollar a day per scooter.
