Update Wednesday, Oct. 3: At a Meridian city council meeting Tuesday, the city requested Lime to put the scooters on hold until more discussion can take place about the future of the scooters. Over the weekend, before a hold was put on Lime’s services in Meridian, Lime reduced the number of scooters from 200 to 100.
Original post Friday Sept. 28: The California company Lime has brought their electric scooters to Meridian. Called Lime-S scooters, the devices cost $1 to unlock and 15 cents per minute of riding. But unlike some programs around the country that rely on centralized stations where the scooters are locked to metal racks, these scooters will be dockless.
