Waybots' scooters join DC's dockless bike share test
Mar. 01, 2018
WASHINGTON (AP) — Several electric scooters have been rolled out as part of Washington D.C.'S pilot program that test the viability of dockless bike sharing systems.
News outlets reported Thursday that Waybots has "soft-launched" in the District with scooters.
Waybots is governed by the same terms and conditions as the dockless bike companies, meaning 50 to 400 of them are allowed, and there's an agreement to share usage data with the city.
The District is the first city for Waybots, though it plans to partner with other cities across the country.
Waybots uses an app to locate and rent the scooters. Users end the trip by parking the scooter on a sidewalk and completing the ride with the app. No docks or locking is required.
