    Scooters sit on a South Street sidewalk in Kakaako.

A California-based company in the bike-share business has entered the Hawaii market with an electric scooter.

LimeBike scooters began appearing around Honolulu on sidewalks over the weekend.

The green electric scooters, which are parked on a kickstand, cost $1 to “unlock” and 15 cents per minute to ride.

Company officials were unavailable for immediate comment on their plans and operations here.

LimeBike, which was founded in January 2017, had about 10,000 dock-free bikes in 12 U.S. cities and eight university campuses as of late last year and since then has expanded to about 60 locations.
