As Uber and Lyft continue to increase in popularity, this Rome-based ride-sharing app has an environmental spin that is also culturally specific. Scooterino is an Italian carpooling platform, but for scooters. Similar to Uber's model, Scooterino connects people who need a lift with scooter drivers going in the same direction.
After users download the ride-sharing app and create an account, all they have to do is put in their desired destination and Scooterino will suggests a possible ride along with a price quote, driver details and estimated time of arrival. You can pay for the driver's service through the app's secure payment system. The rating system is also included.
This is perfect for solo passengers who don't want to take public transit and don't mind getting up close and personal with strangers.
