After months of development, we’re thrilled to announce Have A Go’s micromobility discovery engine!!
A Micro History:
We started Have A Go early last year…before dockless scooter sharing blew up.
It all started with a design challenge: getting rid of cars in large, sprawling, car-centric Los Angeles without relying on unproven new technology or massive new infrastructure spending with the aim of showing that if it can be done in LA, it could be done anywhere.
Uber’s scooter rumor-mill: While there is no definitive news, the rumors about Uber’s ambitions for a Bird or Lime acquisition continue swirling.
Mother of all scooters: The story of Ninebot, the birthplace of most of today’s electric scooters, and how it never saw the scooter explosion coming.
Yellow Latin Micromobility: Growing out of its first home in São Paulo, Yellow is getting ready to expand dockless bike sharing to Colombia, Argentina, Mexico, Chile, Uruguay, and beyond.
Lyft-off: the ride-sharing company expands Citi Bike into NYC’s outer boroughs, stepping on Lime and Jump territory. Where is Mario Puzo, now that we need him?
Uber in the race for micro-mobility: The ridesharing company is looking to secure a deal with either Bird or Lime before the end of the year.
Equitable bike-sharing: Populus report finds dockless bike-share and e-scooter adoption is more popular amongst DC’s low-income population and African-American residents.
We had an incredible weekend at ReCharge/Culver City Art Walk and Roll!
Thank you to the Culver City Arts District BID for organizing and inviting us!!! 🎉🎶🖼🥙🌯🍺🚲🛴⚡️

Slow and steady wins the disruption: Christensen Institute publishes paper on true EV disruptors being not high-end Teslas, but low-speed, limited range electric vehicles, “hallmarks of disruption.”
E-bikes opposite of “cheating”: Research shows e-bikes still increases heart rates, dramatically increases frequency of riding, and great for overall health.
