Multi-modal Networks & Electric Vehicles for Everyone

April 24th, 2018

Our goal of Electric Vehicles for Everyone is not only a commitment to multimodality and sustainability, but to a new and different way of working with cities.


Why multi-modality?

Scoot is about sharing: sharing vehicles, sharing data, sharing space. We believe that the future of urban mobility cannot be addressed by just one operator or one form, but through networks of shared electric vehicles: electric metro, electric buses, electric taxis, and shared light electric vehicle networks, like the ones Scoot operates.

 


 

What are we doing to achieve multi-modality?

When collaborating with cities, Scoot looks to provide solutions for urban space management: when a parking space is converted from one private car to several shared scooters or ebikes or mini cars, urban mobility is extended to new segments of consumers.


Why do multi-modal networks matter?

Current transportation infrastructure needs support through flexible networks of shared electric vehicles. Free-float networks achieve this by complementing traditional transportation networks with electric scooters, e-bikes and electric cars.

The resulting mutli-modal solution encourages car owners to get rid of their gas burning vehicles and further reduce the city’s congestion, pollution, noise and expense.

 

About Scoot: Scoot founder, Michael Keating, holds a Masters in Urban Planning and MBA from Harvard, and started Scoot not just to provide sustainable mobility but, more importantly, to make cities better places to live. That’s why Scoot was the first company in North America to get a city permit for stationless shared electric vehicle sharing, working closely with the local community to create a customized program.
