Dallas gets yet more scooters with the arrival of a third company with a very familiar name: Razor, the same company that were childhood wheels for many, has now "grown up" as Razor Share dockless e-scooters, and has launched a pilot program in Dallas with scooters for rent.
Razor joins Lime and Bird, the two existing companies offering rentable scooters in Dallas.
A release states that Razor has been at the forefront of mobility innovation since 2000 when they reimagined the scooter to become a global phenomenon.
They launched their first electric scooter in 2003. Since then, Razor has been the world’s leading producer of electric scooters.
The company claims to have a better-shared scooter ride. Their scooters have cushy front air tires, a wide deck big enough for two feet side-by-side, a UL-compliant lithium-ion battery, and a rigid steel frame.
They've dropped 1,000 scooters in Dallas in what they describe as "Dallas' downtown urban core." It's a pilot program whose ultimate disposition will be determined by the city of Dallas.
"We are thrilled to be joining the Dallas community with our Razor Share dockless e-scooters that have been specifically designed for shared scooting to provide a better ride experience," says COO Danny Simon.
The Dallas launch follows one in Denver where Razor launched on October 4.
Razor will be holding a community pop-up in the next month where residents, ages 18 and up, can test out Razor Share and receive a free helmet.
