What will happen if a scooter (think Lime, Uber Bird or Lyft) runs out of charge while the user is driving it?

I also cannot sleep thinking about what happens when it dies mid trip.

    Not worth losing sleep on it. If it’s dies, dump it and grab another one. There are more scooters in some cities than riders. Best answer though would be pick one with full of juice, you’re not going more than a few miles on it or be riding it continuously. Keep swapping.

      Thanks. Total newbie. I didn't even know you can check the battery before the ride. Do you know if that appears on the app or do I have to pick it up first to check?

      All I know is that I heard scooters are great in Austin. Gonna give it a shot.

        Yes, once you turn your app on, first it'll locate all the scooters nearby and populate them on a map. When you click on a specific scooter, it'll tell you how much juice it has. My suggestion is to sign up with all the companies servicing Austin, they may have special deals for new riders. Take advantage of it.
