Scoot has become the latest company to introduce dockless, shareable mopeds. Called Scoot Mopeds, the devices will be available through the Scoot and Bird apps as a pilot program in Los Angeles, with more cities expected to add them later this year.
The company said its new mopeds are “comfortable, efficient, and easy-to use vehicles,” with features including powerful brakes, side mirrors and an LCD display for enhanced visibility and large tires that help deliver a smooth ride.
The vehicles come equipped with a helmet, and riders must be over 18 years old and have a valid drivers license. Once a ride is complete, Scoot said the mopeds must be parked on the street in designated motorcycle spaces and between car parking places and cannot be ridden on sidewalks.
