Electric scooter rental in New York
Anyone aged sixteen or older can rent an electric scooter in New York without having a (moped) driver’s license. Ride the e-scooter across Times Square, through the streets of Manhattan or along the Hudson River. Because the departure point is close to Central Park, you can also ride the scooter there. Controlling the electric scooter is very easy: you push off and press the throttle. You can then put both feet on the scooter and continue to accelerate. You can break with the handbrake or by letting go of the gas. You can always ask for an additional explanation when picking up if it’s your first time using a scooter.
