You can now Scoot and Skip down The City’s streets.
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s electric scooter rental pilot program launched Monday, allowing two companies to deploy 625 conveyances each for a period of one year.
The roll out wasn’t without drama.
On Friday, Superior Court Judge Harold Kahn dismissed a lawsuit brought by Lime, another electric scooter rental company, seeking to temporarily halt the pilot program.
“Our decision to file this lawsuit was not about preventing other operators from going forward; it was about exposing the biased and flawed process of the SFMTA, standing up for the rule of law, and serving Lime’s hometown,” Lime states.
