A couple of months back, Superpedestrian, a spinoff of MIT Senseable Cities Lab announced the launch of LINK, its new shared micro-mobility division. The expansion into the shared micro-mobility space is fueled by the acquisition of Zagster’s scooter business, amid the pandemic. According to the report, Superpedestrian specifically bought the “permits, software and other IP, and talent”, related to Zagster’s scooter fleet division.
Launching in Rome
In the latest development, LINK announces the expansion into Rome in September 2020. It marks the first European launch for LINK, which serves several US cities. It’s worth mentioning that LINK will bring up to 1,000 e-scooters on the road initially.
