Lime included in TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential Companies

TIME Magazine has included Lime on its inaugural 100 Most Influential Companies list.

“It’s an honour to be recognised by TIME Magazine, not just as a leader in our field, but as one of the most influential companies in the world,” said Wayne Ting, Lime’s CEO.

“We’re truly humbled by this recognition and it’s a testament to our dedicated team, our riders and our city partners across the world. It is also a clear acknowledgement of how our mission-driven approach to revolutionising urban mobility has made a true impact in the lives of city residents across the world.

“We will continue to strive toward our goal of a future where transportation is shared, affordable and carbon-free.”

Last month, Lime announced a $50 million investment into its newest-generation e-bike. The investment will allow the company to launch and scale its newest model and reach 50 cities around the world, doubling its current footprint.

The past year has seen the company be awarded competitive permits in cities including Paris, New York and Chicago, and it has also launched its Ride to Recovery programme in the UK, Tel Aviv, San Francisco, Seattle and more.
