LINK E-Scooters Roll Into Alexandria

Electric scooter company LINK has been issued an operating permit in Alexandria, and 200 of its e-scooters have been spread out across the city.

LINK, which is owned by Massachusetts-based Superpedestrian, is offered in nearby Arlington and more than a dozen cities around the world, including Madrid, Spain, and Rome, Italy.

“We are thrilled to offer our LINK scooters to Alexandria residents during this challenging time,” William Knapp, vice president of operations at LINK, said in a statement. “As we continue to live through the COVID-19 pandemic, safe, sustainable, and accessible modes of transport are increasingly important. We look forward to serving the city of Alexandria with our LINK scooters, engineered to increase rider safety and offer convenient individualized transport.”

LINK e-scooters cost $1 to unlock and 35 cents a minute. The company says that no injuries have been reported on its e-scooters around the world, there have been zero equipment recalls and that the scooters are geofenced to keep them from being ridden on sidewalks or restricted areas.

While LINK is not listed on the city’s Dockless Mobility page, operating permits have been issued to:

According to LINK:

The LINK scooter is the industry’s first and only e-scooter with on-board Artificial Intelligence that performs vehicle maintenance. Each vehicle has five computers that work together as an A.I. Mechanic, monitoring every component thousands of times per second, instantly self-repairing electronic systems, and flagging mechanical components for maintenance if needed.
