The City of Jacksonville officially launched a one-year pilot program for e-scooters, e-bicycles and dockless bicycles. Locals and visitors alike can rent and ride electric scooters Downtown via smartphone applications. Scooters can be rented and dropped off between the hours of 5 a.m. - 12 a.m. at 37 designated, geofenced corrals on the sidewalk and out of the way of pedestrians, parked cars or other users. Riders pay $1.00 to unlock the scooters and $0.20 - $0.35 per minute to ride, depending on the vendor (see price points per vendor below).
This program is yet another step towards reclaiming options for pedestrians and bicyclist Downtown by providing healthy, viable and environmentally sustainable transportation alternatives.
