What is Scoot? Who is Scoot? We are Scoot!

We are Scoot

We create networks of scoots. Scoots are shared, electric, smartphone-activated motorscooters you can ride in the city. At Scoot we teach you how to ride the scoots, we keep the scoots running, and we find places to put more scoots to make the network bigger.

We make life in the city better

Scoots are fast, cheap, and easy to park, so they are good for you. They are also clean and efficient so they are good for the air and the climate. And they don’t take up much space on the road or at the curb which is good for everyone else.

We are passionate and dedicated

We are city slickers, gear heads, techies, tree huggers, and teachers who love our jobs, love our riders, and love the way Scoot is changing how we all get around the city.

Sometimes people spell our name wrong. Now, if we could, we’d be shouting ‘WE LOVE SCOOT!’ from the top of Sutro Tower every day. (NOTE: if you’ve actually done this, let us know because that’s awesome!) Even then, our friends might still ask, “Wait, how do you spell that?” Skoot? Scooot? Sccot? Sccoott? Scoot Scoot? Scootti? Scooy? Scoote? ScootSF? S.C.O.O.T? Scootapp? Scootnetworks? Scoot net? Scut? Scuut? Scüt? The Scoot? Schooter? Xcoot? Scott? Scoott? We’ve heard ‘em all. And we’re here to say, let’s keep it simple, and keep it Scoot-y — it’s just how it sounds: Scoot.
