Today, we have two pieces of news to share: we’re pivoting to a new project, and our scooter sharing operations will continue with a new partner.

First, we’re excited to begin building something new outside of shared scooters. Our new project applies engineering work from our past few years to…


  • Skip will begin voluntarily publishing regular reports, starting today, that detail spare parts consumption across our new S3 fleet. This includes recycling and landfill disposal of all parts, including lithium batteries.
  • This is the first step towards a transparent life cycle analysis (LCA) to help policy makers understand the true…


For the first time, Skip is introducing tip-over detection technology for dockless mobility and a public dataset on scooter tip-overs.

In 2018, we began designing S3, Skip’s first electric fleet scooter. S3 uses unique sensors and onboard vehicle software to benefit both riders and cities. …


For a surprisingly large percentage of commutes in San Francisco, Skip is faster than driving. Especially for commutes where bike lane infrastructure exists. In this study, we take a closer look at the science behind that claim — how San Francisco Skips traffic!

Every year, the average San Francisco commuter…

We are excited to share that Skip will resume operations in DC, Alexandria, and Arlington in the coming weeks. We’re doing so with revamped safety procedures, monitoring, and transparency that raises the bar for safety in the industry.

We want a flawless safety track record, but we’ve made some mistakes…


Starting July 1, Skip is excited to open two new hubs in Austin and San Diego as we expand from our existing operations in San Francisco and Washington D.C.

Our mission is to energize cities by making smaller, simpler electric mobility accessible to everyone. …


Skip is inviting city residents to apply to its Community Advisory Board — designed to counsel Skip on the diverse needs and expectations of the San Francisco public.

The board will be comprised of nominees from the SF Supervisors and at-large seats by application. Riders and non-riders from across San…


TLDR: Serverless has made it possible to scale Skip with a small team of engineers. It’s also given us a programming model that lets us tackle complexity early on, and gives us the ability to view our platform as a set of fine-grained services we can spread across agile teams.


It’s been almost six months since Skip launched in San Francisco to bring reliable, safe, and sustainable transportation to our hometown. …
