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.

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.
