For the last few months, Lime's electric scooters have been sitting in warehouses outside of Montreal. After months of negotiations with the city of Montreal, the company has finally received the green light to start dispersing its electric bikes throughout the city, according to Radio-Canada.\nUPDATE: TVA reports that the scooter launch has been postponed. It is now unclear whent the scooters will begin circulating.\nEARLIER: Ville-Marie and Westmount will be the first areas to see these bikes, followed by Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension and Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce.\nMontrealers should be able to start using the bikes as of this weekend. However, users should be warned that there will be strict limits on who can use these electric scooters. According to Radio-Canada, Montreal has some of the strictest regulations in the world regarding this mode of transportation.\nIndeed, unlike most other places, users of these scooters will have to leave them in designated "parking areas," much like BIXI docks. Ville-Marie has about a hundred such spots.\nThe city hopes that this will stop users from littering roads and sidewalks with the dockless electric scooters, as users have been doing in other cities.\nWas just in Paris for a few days. That place is littered with motorized scooters. At least six different share companies: Bird, Lime, Dott, Jump, more. Many splayed on sidewalks, other standing up and blocking them.

Those who want to use Lime scooters need to be 18 and over and have a permit for a moped.\nUsers will also need to follow a short tutorial on how to use the scooters when they download the app. Scooterists are further required to wear a helmet.\nView this post on Instagram Carol Browner, trusted Lime advisor, stopped by Lime headquarters to talk about sustainability and the work Lime is doing to make cities greener and more livable. We’re excited Browner, who has years of experience as an EPA administrator and President Obama's energy and climate advisor, is working closely with our team to help guide Lime's sustainability efforts. Listen to hear what she had to say. #UnlockLife A post shared by Lime (@lime) on Jul 16, 2019 at 2:46pm PDT\nThe scooters will not be allowed on sidewalks, nor will they be allowed on roads with speed limits of 50 k.m./hour or more.\nThese regulations have been put in place to limit the number of injuries, which have been reported in other cities. Given the state of Montreal's roads, these precautions are particularly warranted here.\nWith all of these rules, it remains to be seen whether or not the scooters gain popularity in Montreal, particularly because they have a price point higher than that of BIXI or JUMP: to rent a Lime scooter, you pay $1 up front and then $0.30 per minute.\nThe pilot project will conclude in November, after which the city will decide whether they want to renew the project for the next year.
