Get scooting today — and start loving how you get around SF


Join Scoot today. Get a free Scoot lesson, no motorcycle license needed!

Most rides are $4 for the first 15 minutes and 10¢ a minute after that. Rides that select the convenience of ending on the street will cost a little more, while returning scoots with less than 10 miles to a garage will cost less.


To scoot, you:

  • do NOT need a motorcycle license
  • must be 18 or older
  • must have a US driver’s license


Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Which plan is right for me?

A: Pay as You Go – Is Scoot your go-to when you’re running late to meet a friend? Or for the occasional meeting across town? You can use scoot whenever you need to and simply pay-as-you-go for the single ride at the time of reservation.

The Flex Plan – offers a guaranteed price per ride, allowing you to lock-in discounted pricing during the most popular times during the day (as much as a 67% discount on your daily commute) for a low monthly membership fee.

Q: How do I upgrade?

A: To use scoot for a Single Ride, just download the app and get scootin’. For our membership Plans, simply send an email to with the subject “I want to upgrade to the Flex Plan” and we’ll change your account to the plan you specified.

Q: Are there any discounts or other ways for me to save money on rides?

A: Returning a scoot with a low battery to a garage is still $1 off your ride, and finding a scoot with a “FREE” icon on the Scoot map means the first 30 minutes of that ride is free as long as you plug in the scooter at the end of your ride — our way of saying “thanks” for helping to keep the network charged and healthy.
