What is Scooterino?
Are you ready to join the new Italian community by giving and receiving motorcycle and scooter rides saving you both time and stress?
How does it work?
It’s extremely easy: download the app and request a ride from one of the available Scooteristi nearby. If instead you already drive a motorcycle or a scooter, sign up as a Scooterista and get reimbursed for every offered ride! The refund will be provided entirely online through the app, according to the payment method chosen at registration (credit card, debit card or Paypal). Both the user and the Scooterista will rate each other by leaving their feedback, thus building their own reputation inside the community.
Francesco, Oliver and Pietro, among Scooterino’s co-founders, often reflected upon the potential of a ridesharing service on scooters in Europe provided by peer-to-peer drivers, in the context of the emerging sharing economy: a network between private individuals who would like to benefit by sharing rides on motorcycles and scooters.
In 2014, a startup named Byke was selected by TIM #WCAP and so the adventure of the first 100% Italian platform for scooters sharing began. Already available for iPhone, only one week after its launch on the App Store, Byke was inserted among the best new apps and was featured on iPhoneitalia, Ipaditalia, Applelife, Duerote, Donna Moderna and Ninja Marketing.
In august 2015, Byke merged with another roman startup, relaunching the service both on iPhone and Android under the name of Scooterino.
The community already counts over 5000 members, in the city of Rome.
Scooterino's value offer is truly win-win-win: the user saves time and stress, while the byker saves money; at the same time cities become smarter and less polluted.
This crowdfunding campaign’s objective is to perfect the product and in particular to raise the necessary funds to launch the platform, by initially offering free rides that will help grow the network also in other cities.
