To lock your Scooter, tap "End Ride" in the KIWIride app. Your trip summary and ride history are available on the app as well, for your reference.
Where can I ride?
In general, electric scooters should not be ridden on roads, no matter what the speed is. For your own safety and to avoid inconvenience to others, you should only ride on pavements (at no more than 15 km/h) or cycling paths (at no more than 25km/h). Please ensure you follow any specific regulations that apply in the specific community that you are riding in at any given time.
Why does KIWIride ask for GPS location?
The KIWIride app uses your GPS location to show you scooters that are in your vicinity to within a few meters’ accuracy. The GPS location also serves to ensure your ride history is maintained for your reference.
Do I need safety gear?
Even though it is not a legal requirement, it is highly recommended that all riders put on the necessary safety gear such as helmets and proper footwear. For example, high heels or very loose slippers should be avoided.
How easy is it for first timers?
Even someone riding for the first time will be able to familiarize themselves and start right away. Due to the nature of the vehicle, it is relatively easy to stand on and ride without having to worry about losing balance or control. As with everything else, it is always advisable to start slow and gain speed gradually.
