When you see the scooters parked around the city, attractive and accessible for anyone wanting to take a quick ride, it's tough to resist hopping on one. But before you do, it's essential to educate yourself on the costs associated with renting electric scooters.


First, understand that each electric scooter rental company has a unique pricing structure. Typically, they charge users an initial unlocking fee and then an additional per-minute fee. For example, Lime commonly charges a $1 unlocking fee and a $0.15 to $0.32 per minute fee, while Bird has a similar unlocking fee with a $0.20 to $0.33 per minute fee.

It's crucial to know that each scooter ride is time-based, meaning the costs add up as long as your ride lasts. So, if you're taking a ten-minute ride on a Lime scooter, you'll be charged the unlocking fee plus $1.50 to $3.20 for usage, totaling $2.50 to $4.20. However, many companies offer options for discounted passes, which can include multiple scooter rides at a fixed rate. Passes can provide excellent convenience and reduced costs to frequent scooter riders.


Electric scooter rental companies may also charge extra fees for parking violations, damages, or extended rental periods. For instance, Lime imposes a $25 fee for incorrect scooter parking, and Bird assesses a fee for damaged scooters based on the damage cost. It's essential to read and understand the terms of service provided by the rental company to avoid unexpected charges.

Remember to always ride safely and follow all local guidelines while operating an electric scooter.
