Razor launches electric scooter share service in Long Beach
In a recent announcement, US electric-scooter company Razor has said that it has launched its new electric scooter share service in Long Beach, after having received a permit from the city to operate the service.
Razor is year 2000-launched scooter company which was initially focused on selling simple, low-cost scooters which defined the sidewalk and driveway fun for new generation of kids looking for adventure. In June 2018, the company specifically grabbed attention when it disclosed its plans to foray into the electric scooter sharing market.
After having applied for one of five sought-after permits for operating an electric scooter rental service in San Francisco in June, Razor has now revealed that it has become the first scooter share company to be granted a permit by Long Beach authorities for operating its service.
The announcement implies that Razor has ventured into the electric scooter sharing arena which has been witnessing immense growth worldwide over the last one year. The service unfolds the use of the small EVs as ‘last mile’ type vehicles which --- for a price of barely $1, along with an additional 15 cents per mile -- facilitate people to commute in big cities.
About the launch of Razor’s electric scooter share service in Long Beach, the company’s COO Danny Simon said: “Our goal is to bring a great ride to the residents of Long Beach that is fun, safe and convenient.”
