Exciting news right?! This news comes after SF denies JUMP’s electric scooter for their city, our city Mayor Darrell Steinberg showed his excitement for the new city addition, saying: 

“Shared scooters will give our residents another affordable, green way to get around. I’m particularly proud that we’ve taken the time to learn from the experience of other cities so that we can welcome scooters to Sacramento in a way that best protects our city’s quality of life and the safety of riders, drivers and pedestrians.”

Here’s what you need to know: Friday, February 8th, 100 electric scooters will be available to rent at Jump Bike racks in Sacramento and West Sacramento, according to Sac Bee. You can find shared electric scooter through the Uber app. The scooters must be parked at bike racks and it will be illegal to ride them on sidewalks. The scooters go 15 mph and will cost 15 cents per minute. Under state law, users age 18 and older are not required to wear a helmet when riding but are encouraged to wear a helmet to avoid head injuries in case of an accident. 

There will be two launch events for the scooters PLUS a helmet giveaway on Friday at Old Soul on Broadway from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. where FREE coffee will also be available. And The Barn in West Sacramento from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., where free stroopwafels will be served according to FOX 40 News
