Nashville has another new way to get around. It's the sit-down scooter from a company new to Nashville, DASH. But these are very unlike the scooters we see from BIRD and LIME. And the difference isn't just that you sit-down instead of stand. These are much more "serious" forms of transport. And they're not cheap.
The company may call them scooters, but here's how they're different:
You can't just grab one anywhere. You have to get them from their rental facility. And you can't just leave them wherever you go. You have to return them.
They provide the helmet.
They can go close to 40MPH.
They cost $40-$55 for 2 hours.
Your rental includes a wheel lock, so no one else can grab it when you stop somewhere.
It's designed more for sightseeing tourists.
And you don't need a motorcycle license, since it technically doesn't fall into that category.
