There’s a new way to get around your city. Electric scooters are available through the Uber app.
Make sure your Uber app is updated to the latest version, then tap Ride at the top of your screen and select Bike & Scooter.
Reserve a scooter, find it, and then scan the QR code on the handlebar using the Uber app to unlock it.
Walk up to a scooter, tap the blue QR code icon in the Uber app, and scan the QR code on the handlebar to unlock it.
Kick off the ground 3 times to get going, and press the throttle for a boost up to 15 mph. Press the brake on the left handlebar to slow down, or step on the rear brake to come to a more immediate stop.
Among other things, wear a helmet when you ride, follow all traffic laws, and park near a bike rack in the parking zone shown in the Uber app. Don’t have a helmet? We’ve partnered with some of the best helmet companies to offer our riders discounts.
Open your Uber app, then tap Ride at the top of your screen. Select Bike & Scooter. You’ll see all the scooters near you on the map.
You can either tap to reserve a scooter on the map, or walk up and unlock it by scanning the QR code on the handlebar. You could also enter the alphanumeric ID on the scooter into the app to unlock it. Reserving a scooter in the app ahead of time ensures that the scooter is there for you when you arrive.
When you’re on the road, be mindful of your safety and those sharing the street with you. No bike lanes? No problem, just ride like a bike with the flow of traffic.
You can ride scooters in and out of the parking zone on the map, but you must park your scooter and end your ride within the parking zone. Otherwise, you will be charged a $25 fee. If you happen to end your ride outside the parking zone, you’ll be notified.
