Scoot operates networks of thousands of shared electric vehicles in San Francisco, Barcelona and Santiago, serving tens of thousands of monthly riders who have collectively logged almost seven million electric miles. Scoot’s fleet of electric motor scooters, bicycles, and kick scooters provides mobility that is as fast as a car and as affordable as mass transit. The company’s state-of-the-art fleet management technology and customer-facing app facilitate accessible, affordable, and clean transportation for urban environments. After refining its operations through years of experience and learning, Scoot is expanding its reach to help cities cut back on pollution and congestion. The company launched in Santiago in October and plans to enter additional cities across Western Europe and the Americas over the next year.
In June 2019, Scoot was acquired by Bird. Together, Bird and Scoot will offer riders more vehicles featuring the latest technology advancements for the sharing market, and provide service in more communities, while helping cities meet their ambitious goals of reducing both automobile traffic and climate-changing carbon emissions. Scoot will continue to operate as Scoot, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bird. More information here.
