"Lime, the largest scooter sharing company in the world, is pulling out of 12 cities worldwide, including Atlanta, Phoenix, San Diego and San Antonio in the U.S. The company is also laying off about a hundred employees, or 14% of its workforce. Competitors Bird, Scoot, Lyft and Skip have also downsized over the last year as part of efforts to become profitable.
