How? Lime Scooters have made their way to Ipswich

A NUMBER of Lime scooters have made their way to Ipswich and found abandoned in a car park.

The four bright green vehicles were spotted in the Moreton Family Park in Chuwar on Tuesday afternoon.

Lime public affairs manager Nelson Savahn said the company's operations team have been alerted and are working to retrieve the scooters.

"We are working to bring Lime to more locations around Australia and advise reporting scooters left in inaccessible or inappropriate areas to the Lime Aus customer service team," he said.

"All of our scooters are GPS and 3G-enabled, making it easy to track their location if needed.

"We do not recommend taking the scooters outside of the service zone, as it goes against our primary goal of ride-sharing and dispersing scooters where needed."

The scooters are only serviced in Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide which equals one long ride to Ipswich.

Scooters are located using the Lime app, with a map showing users all available vehicles in their area.

Mr Savahn said there are no plans to launch Lime locally.

"We are continuously looking to expand our fleet across Australia and we work closely and collaboratively with local authorities to ensure our service is something that will benefit their community," he said.

"Currently, (we) do not have plans to launch in Ipswich but this is certainly something we would consider in the future."
