Scooter businesses aren’t successful—or are they?
Despite the mass popularity of electric scooter rental services, there are a lot of doubts about the overall success of the businesses that run them. It’s a common misconception that scooter businesses have negative unit economics and constantly need fleet upgrades to keep up with usage. The reality is electric scooters remain the easiest and most efficient way to create safe last-mile travel.
Lynx City is a civic-minded solution to electric scooters
Lynx City is a micro-mobility e-scooter rental company that's dedicated to promoting civic interests and easing everyday life for folks on the go. We work with college campuses and cities to promote community events, school happenings, city concerts, and more. We encourage our customers to explore their downtown areas and shop local businesses. A portion of each ride is donated to local wildlife rehabilitation experts in the cities Lynx operates in. Our company solution is to launch markets we know we can win, avoid irrational RFPs and competition, and operate positive ride economics from day 1.

Lynx City targets small and middle markets where there's little to no competition
Lynx City has a competitive edge over current competitors in the market due to our market target and availability. Unlike Bird, Lime, and Spin, we have focused primarily on smaller cities that have been ignored in favor of larger markets. As such, we enjoy little to no competition in certain geographies, allowing us to build up our brand visibility across the US.
