Be mindful of pedestrians and avoid crowded sidewalks. When crossing streets, use crosswalks and obey traffic signals.

Step 5: Parking and Ending Your Ride

Appropriate parking spots include sidewalks, bike racks, and scooter corrals. Be sure to park your electric scooter in a manner that does not obstruct pedestrian traffic, fire hydrants, or entrances to buildings.


To end your ride, open the app and follow the prompts to lock the scooter. Your rental fee will be calculated based on the duration of your ride, and your account will be charged accordingly.
