Scooter Sharing

A scooter sharing system is a type of transport service in which the user can rent electric motorized scooters for a short period of time. These scooters are called e-scooters and typically do not have a fixed home location. Put simply; scooter sharing is the shared, free-floating use of electric and combustion scooters, where operators enable customers to rent scooters directly through the use of a smartphone.
