#MoveLikeABoss is the coolest campaign since…..there’s never been anything this cool. #Bosses move in multimodal spaces. Sometimes they’re forced to drive alone, but most of the time they opt for a sustainable transportation option like e-bikes, carpools, or scooters.
Launched in the summer of 2018, electric scooter-share landed in Minneapolis with convenient, spontaneous, short-distance transportation to meetings, grabbing lunch, and commuting. Users download an app to locate and rent the scooters. Scooter renters are charged an unlocking fee and then by the minute.
A report from the 2018 Minneapolis pilot project demonstrated that scooters were used primarily as a transportation mode rather than recreational riding.
• 75,000 people took 225,000 trips during the 4-month pilot period in 2018
The City of Minneapolis contracted with three companies to provide a total of 2000 scooters. 800 scooters are designated for the downtown area and North Loop, and the remaining 1200 are distributed in neighborhoods throughout Minneapolis.
Scooter renters must be 18 or older, have a valid driver’s license and a credit, debit, or prepaid card. Users should wear a helmet and know the riding and parking rules.
Minneapolis offers a choice of three scooter-shares. Download the app, grab your bike helmet, locate a scooter…..and GO!
