Razor’s electric scooters have hit the streets of Denver
If for some reason you’re making your dockless mobility choices based on early aughts nostalgia, today’s your big day. Razor has dropped its fleet of electric scooters in Denver.
Denver Public Works gave the company a permit for 350 scooters, and confirmed today that the company deployed 100 on Tuesday and the remaining 250 today.
For those of you keeping track, that means we’re up to 1,400 dockless electric scooters in Denver. The Razor fleet joins Lime and Bird, which made their surprise arrival in May and then their permitted re-entry in July, and Lyft, which released its scooters early last month.
We’re still expecting 350 scooters from Spin, plus 500 dockless electric bicycles from Lyft. Uber has already deployed 500 of its Jump bikes.
Update: While Zagster has been on the city’s list of permitted companies with an expected launch fall, a representative of Zagster says it’s not happening just yet.
“Zagster will not be launching bikes in Denver in the coming months to focus on its current roster of active markets,” Danielle Toboni wrote in an email. “Denver is an exciting market for all kinds of shared mobility options and Zagster looks forward to potentially partnering in the future.”
To use the Razor scooters, you’ll need to download the app, enter your phone number, photograph the front of your driver’s license and agree to some terms.
