uber lime takeover acquisition deal

Buying Bird

Those pesky electric scooters lining the streets of almost every major city in the U.S. are here to stay — whether you like it or not.

And ride-hailing company Uber wants in on the fun. The Information reports that the company is planning  a possible “multibillion-dollar” takeover of the popular scooter-sharing startup Bird.

Bird may be a big player in the scooter-sharing industry, but it’s not the only one around. Other startups like Lime are trying to make their scooters the ubiquitous choice for those who need a ride home from the train station.

In fact, as The Verge points out, Uber already has significantly invested in Lime, not Bird. Since earlier this summer, Uber customers can hail a Lime e-scooter straight from Uber’s ride-hailing app.
