If you're an electric scooter enthusiast who happens to live in Washington DC, you can now start taking advantage of an innovative new scooter-sharing service that is designed to make it easier than ever for busy urban folks to embrace two-wheeled transportation.

Developed by the the company that started electric skateboard startup 'Boosted Boards,' the 'Skip' scooter-sharing service uses vehicles that are capable of moving along at speeds of up to 29 km/h by virtue of a 350-watt, 36-volt motor. The scooters come with a variety of amenities including brake lights and LED headlights, not to mention a handlebar-mounted QR code that users can scan to unlock their scooter.

The concept of 'last-mile transportation' is becoming increasingly important in urban contexts, and the introduction of this scooter-sharing service is set to make zipping around the city a more commonplace sight.
