CHARLESTON, S.C., March 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Gotcha announced it is launching e-scooters in Nashville, TN for immediate use. The 100%-electric scooters offer a fun, safe, and convenient way to cruise throughout the city and surrounding universities.
The scooters will operate from 6:00am to 10:00pm 7 days a week. It costs $1 to unlock a scooter and 15 cents for each minute of use after that. The entire Gotcha fleet is GPS-enabled to make it easy for riders to find, unlock, and pick up a scooter via the Gotcha app, which is live in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
Gotcha's proprietary e-scooters are some of the most advanced on the market, featuring enhanced side lights for added safety, an easily accessible charging port on the handlebar, large airless tires, a wide footpad for increased stability, and speeds of up to 15 mph.
"We're excited to offer a custom e-mobility solution for residents, visitors, and college students in the city of Nashville," said Sean Flood, CEO and founder of Gotcha. "Our model will help connect the campus with the larger community in a safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly way."
