It’s no news that electric scooters are becoming more popular and fast dominating the streets. In fact, San Francisco issued a ban on electric scooters in the city when it seemed you couldn’t go anywhere without trampling on a scooter. Now, just 2 electric scooter companies Skip scooters and Scoot are currently allowed to operate in the city.
We see this changing soon as San Francisco is a big market for electric scooters and other e-scooter companies will likely be appealing this verdict rigorously. Skip scooters, one of the scooter companies selected for the new pilot program first launched operations in Washington D.C before making its way to Portland, Oregon and now San Francisco.
