SAN FRANCISCO (BRAIN) — Scoot Networks, which operates an electric vehicle share program here, has added a fleet of e-bikes to its program and is applying for the city’s dockless bike sharing permit.

The new e-bikes will be accessed through the same app that used to access and ride Scoot’s shared electric scooters. The company currently has 700 electric scooters in the city.

“Scoot’s mission is, ‘Electric Vehicles for Everyone.’ Offering electric bicycles allow us to reach more people at a lower price point and give our current riders a new, convenient option for electric transportation,” said Scoot founder and CEO Michael Keating.

Eli Saddler, Scoot’s head of external affairs,said the company is well positioned to meet the city’s requirements for the dockless share permit.

“Scoot has always worked closely with the city to make sure we are contributing to San Francisco’s transportation goals. We look forward to meeting and exceeding the city’s expectations for data sharing and providing affordable service to all San Franciscans,” Saddler said.
