Lime is threatening to sue Scooter Map and asked Apple to take SM down. Bullying tactics 😢 If you think riders and gig-workers should have options, sign here: Thread:
Scooter Map helps gig-workers make more money and riders find the nearest scooter or bike. Lime is attacking Scooter Map because Lime wants to be a monopoly. If you think: - it should be easy to see...

I started Scooter Map to make it easy to find scooters and bikes. First, I focused on helping gig-worker chargers make more money each hour. Later, I expanded the rider side. Lime, apparently, doesn't like Scooter Map because Lime wants to be the only scooter company you use.

Lime has sent Cease and Desist letters to Scooter Map and has petitioned Apple to remove Scooter Map from the App Store. No one at Lime other than Lime's CLO has reached out to me. There has been no discussion or sympathy for Lime's gig-workers who use Scooter Map.

Scooter Map is a small bootstrapped company that's barely breaking even. Hell, it's just me right now. I am running Scooter Map because I believe it's a valuable service to scooter riders and chargers.

Hundreds of gig-worker chargers have told me that Scooter Map has made their job and lives significantly easier. I can't just abandon them. Lime has raised $750m+ with the claim that they want to "partner with cities" but instead they're bullying small companies.

Does Scootermap prevent Lime from complying with AB5 maybe? I heard Lime is ending the juicer model and is bringing ops inhouse...

"liked" just to show you my support. You did an incredible work with Scooter Map. It's completely the opposite direction of the history.

Let them sue you. They won't do that - it would be too much good publicity for you
