Scooter Share Update: All three operators have now launched! Please keep the rules of the road in mind when riding
Back in September, we announced the three highest-scoring scooter companies in our scooter share application process: LINK, Wheels, and Lime.
We’re pleased to announce that LINK, Wheels, and Lime have received their permits and have launched operations in Seattle!
Our bike and scooter share program gives Seattle residents and visitors another clean, climate-friendly transportation option to reach their essential jobs, take COVID-responsible trips to their local café, get to a grocery store, pick up take-out from local restaurants, or simply get to where people need to get!
You may have already seen Lime operating around Seattle in the last few months.
Did you know that Lime also operates the Jump bike share bikes? As part of their scooter launch, they have also expanded the number of bikes available around Seattle, giving people even more environmentally friendly options to get around.
As part of our efforts to improve transportation in West Seattle, our second operator, LINK, has focused initial deployment of their state-of-the-art electric scooters to the West Seattle peninsula.
West Seattle residents and visitors can use Link scooters to get to their essential destinations, explore their neighborhood, or more easily connect to transit.
Finally, Wheels – the seated scooter vendor – has now launched in Seattle.
Wheels’ unique seated-style scooter is now available for rental in Seattle. These seated devices offer a more accessible option for people with specific needs, have larger wheels, and a stable riding position that’s geared towards our city.
