A scooter-sharing system is a form of mobility service that allows users to rent electric scooters for short-term rentals.
Users can locate and unlock nearby scooters and start their ride through a mobile app. The app’s payment system lets users pay for their trips using a credit or debit card, and the app charges them for the length of the trip. Some systems might also provide subscription-based models or per-minute or per-distance fees.
Scooter-sharing has grown in popularity but has also sparked safety concerns. Mainly due to users being inexperienced with electric scooters or driving in a hazardous manner. Many countries have put restrictions and safety rules in place, such as mandating helmet use and setting an age limit.
