CAMBRIDGE, Mass., October 29, 2021 (Newswire.com) – Modeled on public transit passes, Superpedestrian’s LINK shared e-scooter service will offer riders the option to purchase 1-Day, 7-Day and 30-Day Passes in select cities. LINK’s Passes were created for residents of cities across the country who use LINK to make frequent trips, to help lower their day-to-day transportation costs. Throughout the pandemic, more people are relying on LINK’s reliable, convenient and safe e-scooters for transportation, and Passes give these frequent riders affordable pricing options. Riders can use LINK e-scooters more often for a lower fare and choose a Pass that fits their needs. The passes will roll out today in Manhattan, Kansas; Detroit, Michigan and Columbus, Ohio, before being expanded to all cities served by LINK later this fall.
With the purchase of a Pass, the rider will enjoy the first 30 minutes of rides for free, after which standard per-minute charges apply. The 1-Day Pass gives riders access to unlimited 30-minute rides for 24 hours. The 7-Day Pass offers up to 30 rides within 7 days. The 30-Day Pass will include up to 100 rides within 30 days. Pass pricing varies by city based on the per minute rate in each city. Frequent riders will save money with passes compared to purchasing individual trips.
“Whether you’re commuting to work, running errands or exploring your city, Passes will help our frequent riders save on their trips,” said Paul White, Senior Director of Public Affairs at Superpedestrian. “We are thrilled that local residents in cities across the country use LINK to get to their next destination, and we know Passes will make their rides fit seamlessly into their routines and budgets.”
