How We Came To Build A Mobility Search/Discovery Engine

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.

Is Los Angeles A Global Mobility Sleeping Giant?

LA has a bad, terrible, abhorrent mobility track record. It was just crowned the worst city to bike in the entire country (not a surprise to anyone living here, with most of our streets the size of most other city highways).
