Electric scooters are taking over Tulsa
Scooter sharing company Lime brought its fleet to Tulsa in October, followed quickly by Bird Rides Inc.
Tulsans now have a new option for transportation: electric scooters. Scooter sharing company Lime brought its fleet to Tulsa in October, followed quickly by Bird Rides Inc. Downtown, Brookside, Utica Square and Cherry Street are all quickly becoming scooter hotspots.
The scooters are GPS and 3G-enabled, allowing riders to find, unlock and pick up a nearby vehicle using their smartphone. Rather than dock the scooter at a station, when the ride is finished, riders simply end the ride with the Lime or Bird mobile apps and responsibly park the scooter by the street curb, or at a bike rack.
Both brands cost $1 to unlock, and riders are charged 15 cents per minute of riding. Riders must have a valid driver’s license and are encouraged to wear a helmet. For more information, visit li.me or bird.co.
