    A new wave of dockless electric vehicles are hitting Santa Monica streets this week with the introduction of an e-bike system by LimeBike.

    Bird scooters were the first dockless e-vehicle in the city and LimeBike launched their scooters earlier this month. The new e-bikes are an expansion of the dockless model that allows users to pick up a bike/scooter from anywhere and leave it at their destination.

    “As one of the most highly trafficked areas in LA, Santa Monica is a great fit for LimeBike. With our electric bikes, we hope to provide an affordable transportation option, alleviate congestion, improve urban mobility, and transform the future of transportation for all of LA,” said Thomas Lord, LA General Manager.
