Why don’t you need a motorcycle license?

Our scoots are all electric and you don’t need a motorcycle license to ride them. Hop on a scoot in one part of SF, ride wherever you’re going, and leave it at your destination. Scoots have a maximum speed of 30 MPH, so they aren’t considered motorcycles.

What are Scoots?

Scoots are electric mopeds. They go up to 30 mph that you can ride on any street in San Francisco (excludes highways and bridges). They recharge at Scoot garages all over town. Scoots can also park on the street in over 40 neighborhoods. You turn them on with the Scoot app, available for iOS, Android, and any mobile browser. They are incredibly easy and fun to ride!

Do I have to bring it back to where I picked it up?

Nope! You can pick a scoot up at one location and drop it off at any other location. When you reserve a scoot in the app you can change the drop-off location before you start riding. You can also change your drop-off while you’re out riding. If you want to return to the garage where you started, just keep your pickup and drop-off the same.

What do people use Scoot for?

You can commute, run errands, go exploring, meet your friends for dinner, go to the beach, deliver presents…the possibilities are endless. Every day we hear stories about new ways people are using Scoot.
