Do you want electric scooters in the capital?

Hi neighbours,

Are you keen to try out Lime scooters in your city? Because Wellington is next on the list to receive them - potentially just in time for summer!

The scooters have already been launched in Auckland and Christchurch, and now Lime are in talks with Wellington City Council.

Some people are in support of the scooters, others have found a way to make extra pocket money from them, and even singer Taylor Swift was apparently spotted on one in Auckland recently. But the scooters have also caused controversy as one model has already been recalled.

So what are your thoughts on the scooters? Do think they'd be a great way to zip along the Wellington streets? Or are they an accident waiting to happen? Share your thoughts with us in the replies below!
