Where can I ride a grüv scooter?
The service area is outlined in the grüv app along with certain restricted areas – tap each specific area outlined in the app for further instruction. E-scooter users are required to follow the rules of the road. Under state law, motorized scooter users should:
⦁ Ride in the street, and stay to the right. (California Vehicle Code 21228.)
⦁ Use the bike lane if there is one. If the street has a posted speed limit greater than 25 mph, they must be ridden in a bike lane. (California Vehicle Code 21229.)
⦁ Not ride on sidewalks.
⦁ Scooters are allowed to ride on multi-use pathways, such as the Lake Merritt Trail (California Vehicle Code 21230.)
⦁ Scooters may be parked on sidewalks, so long as they do not block driveways, building entrances, curb ramps, color curbs (such as blue zones or yellow zones) or utilities such as fire hydrants. Make sure to leave at least 6 feet of sidewalk space for people walking or rolling.
What are the hours of operation?
grüv scooters are available for rent 24 hours a day. Scooters may not be available to rent at times if they are in need of a charge or maintenance.
Is there an age limit?
Riders must be at least 18 year old.
How fast do the scooters go?
They are limited to 15 mph, and will be automatically disabled if they are ridden outside of the designated pilot area.
