Riders must be 10+ years old to ride dc scooters and accompanied by an adult. If the child is too young they can safely ride with an adult. Waivers are required for children which will be provided at checkin.
No, there is no app that you need to download. Dc scooter rentals are app free making it easier for groups of any size!
We do full refunds for cancellations due to weather no matter what! If it’s not weather related, there is still always 100% full refund as long as you cancel your booking within 24 hours of your rental date.
If your rental duration is under 4 hours - we request that you start and finish your ride at the dc scooter shop.
If your rental duration is 4 hours or more - we offer free delivery + pickup from wherever you want! Just make sure when you finish your scooter rental you park and LOCK scooters in a safe and secure space that is visible from the street.
There is NO LAW requiring helmets. Most people do not wear helmets, but there are a few kids sized helmets at the scooter shop. Since we are a private fleet and scooter shop - dc scooters ARE ALLOWED on the sidewalk, street, bike lane, and pretty much anywhere. The dc scooters don’t have any “NO RIDE ZONES” like the other electric scooters in DC that shut down in some areas of the national mall. Rent dc scooters and ride all the way up to each monument!
Booking in advance is recommended and makes your scooter rentals 100% Guaranteed! There are 2 ways to do it:
Use this website or call the scooter shop and talk to a human being! You can rent by the hour HERE or rent by the day HERE - We do accept same day walk-ins based on availability of scooter fleet and staff.
We provide FREE scooter training. New riders that have never done it - WE GOT YOU! Training is best when you pick up at the dc scooter shop. There is also a quick tutorial when scooters are delivered. During your scooter rental you can send a text or call the shop for on-site customer service and support with an average response time is 10-15 minutes!
Scoot around the city and make pit stops without having to worry about scooter security! Dc scooter provides bike locks so that you can take breaks, check out museums, or eat in a restaurant.
Other scooter companies cannot ride all the way up to all of the monuments because of "geo-zones". That is not the case with dc scooter rentals. Get the full experience and ride wherever you want!
Some of the hot spots are: The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial and then across the street is the beautiful World War II Memorial. The Washington Monument and the Capital are always a must see. Also check out the Lincoln Memorial and the Reflection Pool then ride over the bridge to the Arlington National Cemetery.
