Electric scooters coming to NZ en masse for three month trial of new app

New Zealanders are about to get access to a completely new form of transport.

The electric scooter will arrive en masse to Christchurch and Auckland streets in just a matter of weeks where people will be able to hire them using an online app.

1,700 of the quirky rides will be about for a three-month trial by San Francisco-based company Lime.

Seven Sharp’s Julian Lee was eager to see what it's like to get around the town on the latest in transport technology.
