Common Commutes Made Easier on a Scoot
December 8th, 2016
Scoot makes your morning commute easy! Not only do scoots get you out of buses, they can cut your commute in half. A little known secret to beating traffic is taking the right streets to maximize speed (timed lights galore!) and minimize change in elevation. Lucky for you, we’ve compiled a list of common commutes in San Francisco. Once you’ve found a commute you like, check out Street Parking 101 for everything you need to know about parking right in front of your work.
NOPA to The Mission: 15 Minutes on a scoot, 34 minutes and two buses by public transit.
NoPa to the Mission is easy, just blast down Oak (the lights are timed perfectly for a scoot,) and turn on Gough. Once you’re in the mission you can stay on Mission Street till you get to your destination or move one block east to Van Ness for a faster ride south.
Marina to SOMA: 20 minutes on a scoot, 40 minutes on a bus.
Cruise up Webster to minimize the time you spend going uphill and then enjoy the long downhill. Turn right on Golden Gate for another street that is timed perfectly for scoots. Follow Golden Gate across Market and then turn left or right depending on where you want to go in SOMA.
Richmond to SOMA: 25 minutes on a scoot, 45 on a sweaty bus.
Hop on Fulton and up the small hill to get out of The Richmond. Turn right when you see USF (on Shrader) and then a quick left on Golden Gate. Enjoy the 2 blocks of slow traffic by looking at the campus and then cruise down Golden Gate at full speed. Follow Golden Gate across Market and then turn left or right depending on where you want to go in SOMA.
Sunset to FIDI: 29 minutes by Scoot, 45 minutes on the painfully crowded N Judah.
Follow Lincoln until it turns to Kezar and ultimately Oak. Roll down Oak, Make a left on Webster, and a Right on Golden Gate. Take Polk up the hill (this way is the least steep) and then make a right on Bush. Cruise down bush into the Financial District and drop off your scoot at any of the 6 garages that you want.
Mission to Northbeach: 20 minutes or a really loud subway.
Folsom is your friend if you’re going to SOMA or The Embarcadero from The Mission. Cruise all the way up Folsom then make a left on Fremont and a right on Howard and BAM you’re at the Howard & Spear garage.
Cutting your commute in half could save you more than 80 hours a year. What are you going to do with all of that extra time? Become a world class juggler? Practice botany? Start meal prepping? Time is always on your side with Scoot!
