DENVER (WHDH) — Ride-sharing companies are joining in on the electric scooters trend as a mode of transportation in major cities.
Lyft launched a fleet of scooters that go up to 15 mph in Denver Thursday.
Riders can use the Lyft app to find a scooter or reserve it ahead of time.
So far, the scooter-sharing market has been dominated by Bird Rides, Inc.
The Los Angeles-based company launched the scooters in three New England cities – Cambridge and Somerville, Massachusetts and Providence, Rhode Island – but removed them after officials asked the firm to get permission first.
Uber is also expected to release its own rival scooters within a few weeks.
