Starting in June, the on-demand mobility service Scoobi will introduce Pittsburgh’s first electric scooter feet with 100 GenZe scooters.
Scoobi CEO Mike Moran said in a press release: “Our goal is to reinvent the way Pittsburghers travel, providing an affordable, environmentally conscious way to experience the City.” The program will also introduce charging stations throughout Downtown Pittsburgh and the East End, but the scooters themselves will be dockless, and open for use anywhere in the city.
The top speed is set at 30 miles per hour and have a range of 34 miles per battery charge. The scooters can be rented via a mobile app, which also serves to locate the vehicles. The cost runs at 5 US dollars for the first 20 minutes, and 20 cents for each additional minute.
