2nd Street Lime Scooters will be newly available for reservations in the US, where users will be able to indicate that they will require a scooter in the upcoming 15 minutes. Reservations can be made using the app, so users do not have to worry about another user taking a scooter they intended to use. Users can still use the scooters in the conventional way, where they simply pick up one and go. However, reservations will be voided if a user picks up a different scooter.
The company has indicated that Lime Scooters will be more expensive through reservations, as users will be paying per-minute. The per-minute cost from riding will also be applied to wait times due to a reservation. The company decided to charge for reservation time, in order to safeguard against too many scooters being reserved at once.
