Uber reportedly scooting around idea of buying Bird or Lime
Uber is bullish on shared electric scooters — so bullish that the ride-hailing giant reportedly is considering buying Bird Rides Inc. or Lime. Uber has held talks with both companies, reported both The Information and Financial Times. Uber already holds a minority stake in Lime and added its scooters to its ride-hailing app this summer. The company also bought Jump Bikes, a dockless electric bicycle-sharing system that has introduced scooters, earlier this year.
