The service was launched on May 1, with e-scooters available in the area near the banks of the Danube on both the Buda and Pest sides during the test period, which will run until June 30.

In Buda, the areas include the section between Batthy谩ny t茅r and M疟egyetem rakpart, as well as the area between L谩gym谩nyos and M贸ricz Zsigmond k枚rt茅r. On the Pest side, the area stretches from Szabads谩g h铆d to K谩lvin t茅r, with the campus of Corvinus University also included, all the way to Bor谩ros t茅r.

According to the press release, Lime始s scooters will offer a new alternative for transport around the city, complementing the already existing options, providing a fast and simple method for commuting to work, or getting around the city for leisure activities.

"Budapest is a great city, with significant demand for increasing micromobility, henceforth we始re very glad that we can start Lime始s e-scooter sharing service," says Tam谩s T贸th, Lime始s representative for Hungary. "Together with the municipality, we始re working on finding a solution to urban challenges such as transportation burdened by traffic jams. Lime始s electric scooters are an entertaining, smart, and convenient alternative for short trips in the city, contributing to improvement of the quality of city life."

Cities4People is a project supported by the EU, aimed at finding sustainable and people-centric transportation solutions as an answer to urban mobility challenges. The initiative is active in five European locations: Budapest, Hamburg, Istanbul, Trikala in Greece, and Barton, a suburb of Oxford, U.K.
