E-Scooters by Lime

The presence of e-scooters by Lime in the City of Edmond presents a new alternative transportation option to students looking for a greener way to get from home to class. These scooters are considered "street legal" in Edmond, allowing them to be ridden in traffic or in bike lanes, and can reach speeds of up to 15 mph when outside the boundaries of campus. These specifications make e-scooters a fun alternative to driving, and a convenient way for those in the designated usage zone to get from the front door at home to the front door of class.
