Is Over Regulation Killing The Rental eScooter Business?

Posted by at 5:06 pm on February 11, 2020

There is a great read by the people at City Lab on how over regulation effects the rental eScooter business.

The post shows how San Diego on paper looks like perfect e-scooter rental market. Sun, tourists, nice flat roads and good night life are just a few things that you would make the city a little money pit for the rental scooter firms. Sadly, it’s not.

Here is one of the reason itr isn’t – onerous regulation!  Lime in January joined two other micro-mobility firms in exiting the market in just five months. As with Jump and Skip who both ditched San Diego, Lime claimed that the over abundant and unprofitable regulations drove its decision to leave. Lyft, Bird, and Spin remain. But for how long?

Please head over to City Lab and read David Zipper’s post. He is a Visiting Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Taubman Center for State and Local Government.
