They’re becoming an increasingly common sight on city streets in the U.S. and now Lime’s electric bikes and scooters are coming to Australia for the first time.

The California-based company entered the Aussie market for app-based two-wheeler rentals this week, with its bikes and scooters showing up first in Sydney and Melbourne.

The news comes as Lime announced it’s reached 20 million rides globally with its service – only two months after clocking up 10 million.

To be specific, Lime is operating 300 of its dockless bikes in Sydney, while Melbourne is the location of a three-month scooter trial on a campus of the city’s Monash University.

Plans are afoot to take the scooters to Sydney and Brisbane, too.

“Sydney’s need for innovative transport solutions, which cater to the first and last mile, gives us confidence we will see high uptake of Lime bikes within the community,” said Lime executive Mitchell Price.
