In cities like Barcelona, electric scooters are all ready highly popular, and demand is soaring.
Users simply scan the barcode on the jump scooter with their uber app, and presto you have access! this could potentially reduce carbon emissions from major cities around the world as more people choose to use the scooters, as a cheaper form of transport. Similar to Citi Bikes, and Santander Bikers, you will pick up and leave your scooters at different charging locations around your home city.
Currently it is $1.00 to unlock the scooter and $0.15 per minute after that. A fast, affordable way to get to your morning meeting without taking public transport or ordering an uber car! Share your thoughts with us.
