Electric scooters are growing in popularity in urban areas as consumers seek out efficient ways to get around, so Uber has partnered with Lime Bikes to help offer an easier way for riders to access them.

The partnership will enable consumers to access Lime scooters, pedal bikes and electric bikes at their leisure to make getting around in an eco-friendly manner far simpler. Uber will be promoting the use of Lime vehicles through its app to offer consumers an alternative to catching a ride and will help Lime to increase its ability to expand into new markets or increase availability of bikes.

The Uber and Lime Bikes partnership marks the larger shift towards decentralized transportation options in urban areas as consumers seek out simpler ways to get around.
