Ratings and Reviews
Worked great for me!
I’m thinking of getting an electric non-kick scooter or eBike of my own and decided to try Scoot. After reading the reviews (some of which are ridiculous), I took three rides. So much fun! The helmet strap mechanism is a bit old school but I had no problems with it. On level grades I got up to 30 MPH quickly, and I weigh 210 lbs. No lag. On really steep grades the scooter eventually gave up and I had to turn around and find a less challenging route. While the orientation tells you not to ride on steep hills, neither their app nor Google Maps seem to take grade into account, so be sure to plan ahead. Also, it does take several taps to complete a ride, in order to confirm that the scooter is back on the stand, the helmet is stowed, the scooter is plugged in (in a garage), or you have indicated which street sign you have parked nearest to, and that the scooter doesn’t need repairs. My only regrets: I didn’t have gloves and it was 50°F outside; and one of the previous riders left a used gelato cup, spoon, and newspaper in the helmet compartment (really?!). Everything else worked fine. Some feedback: I would like ride receipts emailed to me. I would like ride history to show the route I took à la Runkeeper or Lyft. And if you can figure out how to route riders around steep grades, that would rock.
Safety and Price issues
Will never use again due to the exorbitant prices. 12$ to go to a store half a mile a way and back.
There are also serious concerns with safety. How can you start being charged before you put the helmet on? What kind of conflict of interest is this? The helmets have an old school buckle system that involves knowing how to use one which I suspect most people don’t . Users are endangering themselves by doing terrible fastening of helmets or not at all, especially if they are struggling with attaching the helmets strap while the clock is ticking. Which explains why everyone you see has their straps undone! Nice one Scoot.
No MPH indication is also terrible. I suspect they thought they could get away with it however there are areas where the limit is less than the maximum speed of these vehicles. Not sure if that’s a new app thing or not but I suspect the City will take my letter rather seriously.
You have to press a minimum of six buttons after pressing “end ride” before they stop billing you. Don’t be surprised if you when you don’t press a million buttons that - dare I say even feel as if they have a learning curve to regular users - you get a 100 dollar bill from forgetting the endless buttons to end the ride. When you end the ride, if it was easy... and you didn’t have to think about it much, well, you probably didn’t end it! Life shouldn’t be that easy right? Sorry, this aspect has seriously upset me. They rectified this situation for me with billing, but in addition to being able to rent scoots where you have to park them across the city in a garage when the scoots are so low on battery they will literally stop on the middle of the street, and the app won’t let you end the ride! Oh my god it’s infuriating. The new UI hasn’t fixed much it seems.
