Fast on the heels of the popular Bird scooters, Lime has launched its rentable electric scooter service in Atlanta. Lime-S scooters cost $1 to unlock and 15 cents per minute of riding.

The scooters are GPS and 3G-enabled, making it simple for riders to find, unlock and pick up using their smartphone. For more information, visit limebike.com.
