RICHMOND, Va. — With its path cleared by a recent City Council vote, at least one electric scooter operator is readying for its Richmond debut.

Lime, a Silicon Valley-based company that operates rentable, on-demand electric scooters and bikes in more than 100 markets globally, is preparing to launch in the city this spring.

Maggie Gendron, the company’s regional development director, said Lime will apply for an application to operate at least 500 scooters in Richmond.

Lynne Lancaster, operations manager at the city’s Department of Public Works, said the application is expected to be posted by March 12.
