Uber said Monday it is investing in Lime, a startup that offers easy scooter rentals. “Our investment and partnership in Lime is another step towards our vision of becoming a one-stop shop for all your transportation needs,” an Uber vice president said in a statement. The company will add Lime motorized scooters to its mobile app, giving consumers another option for getting around cities, especially to and from public transit systems.

According to the company website, customers can rent Lime scooters in more than 70 locations in the US and Europe and leave them parked for the next customer. The company is looking to buy tens of thousands of motorized scooters to expand its reach. The scooters aren’t without critics, however, who consider them a nuisance and a hazard to pedestrians.
