We learned some new jargon while we were learning about electric scooters at the Feb. 19 Evanston Bicycle Club (EBC) meeting. For example:
“Electric Scooter” (also known as e-scooter), a shared, dockless, application based, micro-mobility device that requires charging
“Scooting”, the act of using an e-scooter.
“Juicing’, the practice of charging Lime brand scooters; people who are authorized to pick up and charge e-scooters at their homes at night for a fee are called Lime juicers
“Geofencing”, the use of GPS or RFID technology to create a virtual geographic boundary
