In bike-sharing or scooter sharing there is a concept of rebalancing. Getting the wheels where people want them, not where they left them. In other words the provider has to move the things around. Bike share does this primarily in vans. This is a rebalancing ride, moving four scooters from where they were, to where there are not enough.
When I was in Nashville last March, the taxi driver that was taking me to the airport was a talker. He explained how Uber and such had driven a lot of taxi drivers out of business. We passed a group of ride-share scooters, he said to make ends meet a lot of taxi drivers have contracts with the scooter company. Late at night they drive around town, picking up the scooters and take them to a charging location, then redistribute them back out on the streets.
Have you, or would you, ride one of the electric scooters?
