Good Riding in Austin

Hey, you seem nice. Before you ride off, let’s talk about good (safe and responsible) riding with electric scooters in the city. For more details, check out Austin's Micromobility website.

Hard Requirements

At least 18 years old.

One rider per scooter. Tell your friend to get their own.

Best Practices

Helmets are the best. You should wear them. We'll give you one, just fill out this form.

Pedestrians are at the top of the food chain. Yield to them.

Park with care. Near the curb or in a parking corral, out of pedestrian walkways, away from street corners, fire hydrants, bus stops, access points, building walls, and and and… you get the point. Neighbors will thank you.

Traffic Laws

Don’t drink and ride. Period.

Obey all traffic signs and rules. Yeah, you... We saw that rolling stop you pulled the other day, just saying...

Ride on the road or bike paths, not sidewalks.

Stay within our service area, as shown in our app. Otherwise, we may have to charge a $25 recovery fee to come grab it, and honestly we’d really rather not.
