How E-Scooters Will Reimagine Urban Life

Speakers

Joe Kraus

LIME

Electric scooters have taken the world by storm. In less than 2 years, micro-mobility companies have grown at incredible speeds, with the global-leader, Lime, expanding to more than 100 cities, 25 countries and 5 continents. And, with 100M rides taken, there’s no denying that people are adopting e-scooters as a new way to get around their cities. So, how did we get here and what’s next? This presentation will explore why cities are on the verge of a massive transportation shift, discussing the potential that micro-mobility has to solve some of the most challenging transportation issues like congestion, transit equity, and pollution. Lime will share lessons learned (good and bad), and a path forward for how companies, cities and citizens can work together to build a better future.
