Scoot Electric Rental Grows in San Francisco
Back in October 2012, we reported on a new urban mobility service operated by Scoot Networks, which at the time had just beta-launched in San Francisco. While similar to the numerous bike-share operations that have sprung up in hundreds of cities around the world, Scoot modified that model; from its website, “Scoots are shared, electric, smartphone-activated motor-scooters you can ride in the city.”
As a membership-based service, riders can use Scoot’s app to locate available scooters from numerous locations around the city, check the state of charge of any given vehicle, and by docking their smartphone, unlock a ride to go about their business.
Sixteen months on, this week I spoke with Michael Keating, Scoot’s CEO, to hear how their business is developing. Things appear to be on the up.
