Electric scooter-sharing service Lime plans to terminate its operations in Athens in the wake of poor economic results due to the pandemic, according to Solomon MAG.

The quick, easy, economical and, above all, ‘ecofriendly’ alternative to getting around the Greek capital, became available for both locals and visitors alike in 2019.

According to Solomon MAG, the California-based startup plans to downsize its business in the northern port city of Thessaloniki, while relaunching in Rethymno, in northern Crete.

The decisions, which have not been officially confirmed by Lime, were announced to company employees earlier this week, the report said.
