I have talked to many people in San Diego California that like these electric scooters and some that hate them. And I totally understand why from both sides.
Why People Hate The Electric Scooters for Rent?
- Historically has caused many accidents
- Several users just leave them anywhere, sometimes blocking other roads or pedestrian walk ways
Why People Love The Electric Scooters?
- Current daily routine requires a lot of walking and the scooters help get from point a to point b for distances that are too close to drive, but too long to walk.
- Helps solve the problem of parking when driving to a place close for some quick errand, and parking is an issue.
- Get’s more out of the day if walking consumes at lot of time.
- Some people feel lazy to walk or run.
- Currently does not own a car or has car troubles.
What are the options now that Uber Scooters are gone in San Diego?
Uber’s electric dockless scooters are branded as Jump, a company they acquired before. If they are pulling out of San Diego due to new regulations , you still have the option to use Bird and Lime. However Uber has a minor stake in Lime, we don’t know if Lime is disappearing in San Diego.
But if in the long run Bird and Lime also go away, personally in my opinion. That would be a good thing. And people that really want an electric scooter, then maybe it’s time to think of buying one. That way, people that use it are the ones that really know how to use, which leads to less accidents, and since they own it, they won’t leave it around wherever.
There are a bunch of electric scooter options on Amazon in all different price ranges. Here are a few, and for your convenience they are linked to Amazon where you can buy them.

I find it interesting how some of these scooters are really bulky, and some are so thin. How do you fit in batteries and an electric motor in this? I don’t know if this will be inferior or this is why the price tag is higher.

Expensive but looks top of the line. Nice and slim and has some backup battery. Plus it’s foldable so it’s easy to bring anywhere in a car.
