However, riders in various cities have occasionally experienced difficulty in finding Lime scooters, leading to the question: Is there a shortage of Limes?

Balancing this supply-and-demand in real-time can be complex, especially in sprawling metropolitan areas. Moreover, as cities introduce regulations limiting the number of electric scooters from any one company or overall, this can directly affect the number of Lime scooters in circulation.
