Electric Scooter Sharing


    • The University of Toledo launched an electric scooter sharing program through a company called Lime. Lime-S scooters are designed to provide an effortless experience and a sustainable transportation alternative for students, faculty and staff.
    • Lime’s goal is to charge their entire fleet with 100% renewable energy, and to neutralize their operations emissions by supporting carbon offset projects.
