What you need to know about starting a shared mobility service [Podcast]

There are many moving parts to successfully launching and operating a scooter-share and bike-share business. From the onset, those looking to enter the micromobility market must consider their target market (is it a public shared system or a private model?), intended fleet size, funding opportunities, insurance coverage, what types of vehicles to operate, and, of course, the software platform that will keep the whole business running. 

As the world’s first turnkey micromobility software platform, we’ve mastered the process of getting scooter-share and bike-share operators launched quickly and affordably. And we love to talk about how we make that happen—and what it really takes to launch a profitable fleet.
