Next time you ride a Lime scooter, you'll be paying more due to a secret price increase from the ride-share company.
Previously you were able to hire a lime for 30 cents per minute, and now that is set to change with an 8 cent increase already in place.
This price hike has copped flack, as users were not made aware of the increase, and it was simply put inplace without any notification on the app.
"We've adjusted our pricing to ensure that we can continue to offer excellent operational support where riders demand it most."
This could be bad news for Lime, as a newcomer to Auckland, Flamingo, will still be charging the 30cents per minute model and users may switch companies.
Flamingo launches in Auckland tomorrow, June 11th as well as trialing in Wellington and Christchurch in the coming months.
Wave scooters are still believed to be charging 30 cents per minute.
