July Network Update

July 22nd, 2019

We’re excited to offer SF Kick riders first access to our new app, share our new vehicles, announce our expanded service area, and remind you how to save with our Community Plan. Read on, riders!

A new app is here!
We’ve launched a new and improved app and the first people to have access are kick scooter riders in SF! That means, in order to ride any Scoot kick scooter in SF, (and trust us, you’re going to want to ride these new Kicks!) you’ll need to download the new Scoot Kick app. Download it now⚡️

As a thank you for trying out the new app, we want to offer you $5 of ride credit. Just use code KICKS2019 during sign up.

Our Scoot Motos will continue to be accessible in the existing Scoot app for the time being as we work to integrate them into the new app experience.

Improved scooters!
Scoot is adopting Bird One as the newest scooter in our fleet. Bird One is the premier shared kick scooter and will give you more power to get you up those famous SF hills, and a way bigger battery pack to get you further around town.

A bigger service area!
These new Scoot Kicks need more room to roam, so we are increasing the size of our service area. You can now ride and park in more areas of the Haight and Cole Valley, Noe Valley, the FiDi, Russian Hill, and the Dogpatch.

Scoot Kicks for Everyone
Lots of changes but some things remain – and that’s a good thing! Our low-income Community Plan pricing is staying the same. Scoot’s Community Plan is available to riders who are enrolled in low-income programs such as EBT, discounted utility services or any other state or federally-run assistance programs and offers a discounted price of $.50 to start and $.07/minute on all kick scooter rides. This plan is also offered to employees of pre-approved community-based organizations (CBOs), non-profits, seniors, veterans, students, and teachers. Email community-plan@scoot.co to get signed up for the plan.

See you on the road!
