This week I visited Brooklyness' office in... Manhattan.
Brooklyness offers a scooter as a subscription. You pay $100 for the first month and $40 for the each following month to get a scooter and any maintenance you need along the way.
Brooklyness started in 2015 with an electric bike. They used their e-bike experience to design a scooter ideal for a subscription. Their scooter allows for easier maintenance and weighs less than the shared scooters of Bird and Lime.
The New York Subway handles 6 million rides every day and New Yorkers have over a million cars so scooters have a long way to go. But Brooklyness has fully booked out a few hundred scooters and is awaiting another thousand in early 2020.
At Spring, we are now focused on helping shared scooter companies get started — companies that buy and rent out scooters by the minute. But we plan on offering software to help companies like Brooklyness soon...
