Scooters in Hoboken

What do you think about scooters in Hoboken?

Some say that it would be a lot of fun to “scoot” around Hoboken this summer. Such as taking a quick trip to Newport Mall (without the taxi and Uber BS), or to make fast work of your grocery shopping at Shoprite, or even to see a movie at Pier A Park. But would you feel safe on scooters in Hoboken?

And I wonder how the horrible road surfaces would treat the delicate suspensions on those scooters.

We’ve rented scooters many times when we went on vacation in the tropics (which was fun and convenient) – but does ownership in Hoboken make sense?

Maybe someone could start a scooter rental service here in town? My guess is that some may have thought of it – but it’s probably way not worth the liability issues.

But of course, the safest bet is to walk everywhere! (better for your body too!)

Rentals sound good, but would be more trouble than it is worth. Who wants to stock body bags as part of their business?
