What do you think Bird/Lime?

Dec 8, 2019 30 Comments

Can they be successful (like Uber/Lyft)? Is it a good industry in scooter sharing? I also saw Uber shows scooters and bikes.

      Lol I think scooter sharing can be profitable in my opinion.

    I’d love to see their loss numbers from stolen/broken equipment. The Idea is great but the unsightly nature of bikes/scooters laying around the city streets irks me. Be great if they could have designated pickup locations with more staff picking up and reallocating locations throughout the day.

      I agree, it’s better to arrange scooter/bikes well.

    They are not profitable and never will be without tech improvements or price increases.

      This is a tricky case here. Uber is our investor on C round and they have exclusive deal with us that they need to present our scooters in their app. And yes, they are investing actively on jump as well.

    They have the potential to be a success in walkable cities like most cities in Europe and Asia.

    Think it will be a fad in most cities in the US and will die soon.

    If using it frequently as in commute, one may want to own a foldable scooter instead of paying every time.

    Bird/Lime could be profitable, just as car rental companies can. But not as their crazy hyped valuations.

      Oh yeah, I saw people bring scooters and skip boards on bus/metro. Did they just put Uber mode on scooters? πŸ˜‚

    Stolen shdnt matter much? A bike is worth $200? 30 rides on a bike and it's already broken even.

      Yes, I agree they need some actions to prevent from being stolen, broken etc.

    Are they the source of all the trashed bikes lying everywhere? Surprised cities haven’t seized their assets under eminent domain and put them in a dumpster.
