Soon, residents and visitors will be able to ride e-scooters around another Utah city.

Lime, the largest shared scooter and bike provider in the U.S., is bringing 300 scooters to Ogden for three months, according to a press release.

They will be available on April 19.

"Ogden has undergone such a tremendous transformation in the past decade. The scale of the downtown area was practically made for scooters,” Nate Currey, General Manager of Lime in Utah, stated in a news release. “With the investment of new complete streets-type infrastructure happening, scooter riders can discover Ogden in a new, safe and compelling way.”

The company and Utah city hope their collaboration will reduce congestion and pollution, and encourage people to use public transit.

"The arrival of Lime is a great complement to our efforts to build out our bike network and will also help more people experience our great downtown businesses,” Ogden Mayor Mike Caldwell stated in a press release. “The first and last mile solutions for public transit users will prove to be a win-win situation in our community.”

On April 18 at 10:30 a.m., Ogden City will celebrate the Lime scooter arrivals in front of the Municipal Building. Remarks will be given by Caldwell, Jonathan Hopkins from Lime, and Beth Holdbrook, a board trustee from UTA.

Attendess will be able to see the scooters, learn how to ride them safely and get a free Lime helmet.

There is a possibility more scooters will be added, depending on the demand, a press release stated.
