The scooter companies (Bird, Lime, Skip, Wind, Spin, Voi, Wind, Tier, etc etc) all give you a map with a bunch of markers.
But markers on the map are… markers on the map.
To truly understand if a scooter will be where it says it is, you will need more than just a marker on the map. We built satellite map view into our app to show if a scooter looks like it’s in a house or on a sidewalk.
Today, we are allowing you to use Street View to preview the location of a scooter.
Click on any scooter then click on the eye to see the street view.
Use Street View to understand the area that the scooter is in.
Good areas to find in Street View — increased odds that the scooter is there:
- Park if scooter was ridden recently
- Outside cafe / restaurant / cafe
- Open parking lot
Bad areas to find in Street View — decreased odds that the scooter is there:
- Parking lot w/ fence
- Warehouse / industrial area
- Park if scooter has been there for a while — it should be picked up quickly
Street View is only available for Super Chargers. Start your 7-day trial in the Scooter Map app.
