Riding with Scooti
The best way to get from A to B, ASAP.
With Scooti, you will enjoy a ride that is safe, quick, affordable, fun and more eco-friendly.
Scooti is the first government-compliant motor scooter rideshare service in Australia. This means our Drivers are fully licensed with government endorsement and safety training. Their scooter and equipment are thoroughly inspected, certified and good to go.
Simply download the Scooti app and book your first ride. Your driver will supply a hairnet and a helmet. At the end of your trip, you’ll be able to rate their service.
If you’ve got a question, we have the answer.
Our FAQs are a great place to find answers quickly. If you still can’t find the answer you’re looking for you can always contact us.
+ Why ride Scooti?
Scooters can weave through the traffic clogged roads, which means you save time and get where you need to be, faster.
Ridesharing with Scooti is more affordable than other ridesharing options.
Ridesharing on a scooter reduces carbon emissions and traffic congestion. And with electric scooters booming in popularity, your journey on one of these is carbon neutral.
All Scooti Drivers have quality scooters, clean driving records, and no criminal history. Additionally, they have undertaken a bespoke Scooti training session to ensure only the most competent and reliable drivers are part of our team.
+ Where does Scooti operate?
Scooti operates in Melbourne and Sydney.
In Melbourne, you can book a ride through the app within a 10km radius of Melbourne Town Hall.
In Sydney, you can book a ride via the app, south of the Harbour Bridge.
+ What time can I use Scooti?
We're on the road 7 days a week. In Melbourne, you can catch a Scooti between the hours of 5am to 10pm. In Sydney, we're on the road around the clock.
+ Does motor scooter rideshare exist in other countries?
Yes. Scooter taxis are a hallmark of an advanced metropolitan city and similar companies are becoming increasingly popular in congested cities. Scooterino in Italy, Go Jek in Indonesia and Grab in Singapore are proven successful models.
+ What do I do with the stuff I'm carrying?
Getting around on a Scooti means travelling light. You need your hands to hold on to the scooter.
However, all of our Driver's scooters come with a small luggage box with dimensions of approx. 30cm x 20cm x 34cm.
These will comfortably house the average handbag, notebook or file.
Anything you'd normally take to a meeting, lunch or a mate's house is probably not an issue.
Provided it's not too big, wearing a handbag crossbody or a small backpack should also be fine.
