Lime scooters to hit the streets of Christchurch and Auckland

Electric scooters will start appearing on the streets of New Zealand's two largest cities on Monday. 

California-based Lime has permits to operate 1000 of the electric scooters in Auckland and another 700 in Christchurch, which will be doubled in the Garden City after three months if they are successful. 

The scooters, which can go up to 27kmh using electric motors, can be rented using an app for $1 plus 30 cents per minute (the equivalent of $18/hr) and can be left anywhere within a certain area.
