Included in the dozen applications for the 12-month pilot program to run a scooter-share service are ride-hailing apps Lyft and Uber. Uber applied as Jump, the electrical-assist bike-share company it acquired earlier this year. A Jump exec mentioned a new generation of its red e-bicycle coming out soon, but wouldn’t comment on a possible scooter from the company.
Both Lyft and Uber (via Jump) applied to run rental e-scooters in SF. Only 5 companies will get permits; 12 applied. The applicants: BirdSpinLimeofoScootSkip (Waybots)LyftRazorHopr (Cyclehop)USSCooterJumpRidecell
