How do these scooters work? It’s simple. You download an app, put in your credit card information, and locate a scooter near you. It's about $1 to unlock them, and then .15 cents a minute. When you’re done, you can drop them off anywhere, ideally near a bike rack and out of the way of cars or pedestrians.
Planes, trains, and automobiles are joined by a new vehicle dominating transportation—the electric scooter. As cities like Santa Monica work to integrate the latest form of transportation, it seems like scooters are here to stay, so buckle your helmet and get ready to ride.
