Superpedestrian, a mobility engineering and technology company founded by urban transport experts from MIT, has announced the launch of LINK, its new shared micromobility division. LINK allows riders to rent Superpedestrian´s e-scooters using a smartphone, the company said.
Superpedestrian´s expansion into the shared micromobility space is fueled by the acquisition of Zagster´s micromobility fleet operations business and an investment of USD 15 million led by growth equity investor Edison Partners, with additional funds from existing investors Spark Capital and General Catalyst.
Founded in 2012 by CEO Assaf Biderman, Superpedestrian´s team has unmatched expertise designing micromobility vehicles, including the world-renowned Copenhagen Wheel. Likewise, Zagster brings operational sophistication gained from a decade of experience managing bike and scooter share systems. By combining operational excellence with the most technologically advanced e-scooters in the industry, LINK brings what has long been missing from the shared micromobility industry.
LINK offers a safer and more sustainable shared mobility service than existing alternatives, with custom technology to improve the rider experience and effectively manage large fleets of vehicles in accordance with city needs.
Superpedestrian is a mobility engineering and technology company that develops and launches urban transport solutions. LINK is the company´s shared micromobility platform and the first operator to offer electric vehicles with self-diagnostic and self-protection technologies, enabling safe and profitable shared fleets.
