Introducing JUMP scooters
There’s a new way to get around your city. Electric scooters are available through the Uber app.
Meet JUMP scooters. They’re fun, affordable, and easy to use—and only available through the Uber app.
What are the requirements to ride?
- A valid US driver’s license
- Must be 18+ years old
- Must wear a helmet
- Ride in bike lanes—not on sidewalks
- Follow all traffic and other laws
- Ride within the speed limit
How do I find and ride a scooter?
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 the scooter is there for you when you arrive.
Where can I ride my scooter?
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.
Where are scooters available?
JUMP scooters are now available to ride in Santa Monica and Austin, exclusively on the Uber app. Check jump.com/cities for more details.
