Electric Scooters Are Coming to Plovdiv
The US e-mobility provider Lime will enter a second Bulgarian city after the capital Sofia. From tomorrow, October 3rd, electric scooters will be available in Plovdiv with the service area divided between the two sides of the Maritsa river. The prices will be again 1.20 BGN for unlocking the scooter, plus 0.25BGN for each minute of riding. In comparison, the Bulgarian e-scooter provider which is also planning an expansion to a city different from Plovdiv is charging 0.20 BGN per minute.
“We are happy that despite the pandemic, we managed to implement our plan for expansion in the country and turn Plovdiv into the new home of micromobility. In the coming months, there will be more and more points in Bulgaria, where people can use only one mobile application for their needs to move in an urban environment, namely that of Lime,” shares Petko Anchev, Lime’s Operations Manager for Bulgaria and Greece.
Recently, after a five-month break caused by the coronavirus outbreak and the related containment measures, Lime’s electric scooters made a comeback on the streets of Sofia. The company also tried to push new, more affordable prices aiming to increase the number of electric scooters users.
Before the pandemic, for eight months on the Bulgarian market Lime had registered more than 150,000 trips and over 30,000 users, who together have traveled over 220,000 km.
