Uber users in Israel can now order an e-scooter through the app, as well as a taxi.
The company is partnering with the micro mobility company Lime, which rents e-scooters and e-bikes.
The idea is to encourage the use of green modes of transport instead of opting for the use of a private vehicle.
Uber announced in September that it was resuming operations in Israel, five years after it was banned by a court for using drivers who lacked sufficient business licenses and insurance.
The Lime partnership will initially run in Tel Aviv, Ramat Gan, Givatayim, Holon and Petah Tikva, with more cities to be added.
Safety features available on the Lime platform, like enforcing speed limits within cities and notifying users of licensed parking spaces, are now also available on the Uber app.
“Uber is committed to continuing to expand the variety of means of transportation for the traveling public in Israel,” said Gony Noy, CEO of Uber Israel.
“The partnership with Lime is another step in creating a green alternative to the private car, alongside our cooperation with taxi drivers in Israel in the Uber Taxi service. We will continue to harness Uber’s technology to help ease congestion on the roads and reduce the use of private vehicles.
“In light of the fact that Tel Aviv is the city with the highest number of rides, we expect that the partnership with Lime in Israel will become one of the most successful in the world.”
Itay Raved, General Manager of Lime Israel, said: “The riders in Israel are among the leaders in the world in adopting green and cooperative transportation solutions.
“The partnership with Uber will allow Lime to make the collaborative tools available. For more and more users, and to further increase the use of alternative, green, collaborative, smart transportation and safety – while easing the congestion on Israel’s roads.”
