Our own SwirlyGrrl spotted this guy on a scooter in Fort Point today.
on scooter taxis. They get the job done.
Spent a year getting around Kampala as a passenger on a scooter/motorcycles. It was fast, easy and only moderately dangerous. Just a matter of time before we do it here as our public transportation breaks down faster than an old Saab.
Swirly was he cute and a nice guy? He may get a lot of female customers lookinh for a mate riding around in that thing.
But people should be aware that scooters aren’t registered in Boston and its illegal to carry a passenger so the concept is a non-starter, at least at this point in this town.
The illegal scooters are the motorized Razor-like thingees that one person stands on - not the kinds with real motors.
I’m actually referring to the Mass DMV website on this. It’s pretty clear on registration of/passengers on motorized scooters. It’s definitely talking about the kind in that picture. I am a 2 wheel commuter as well. Have a look and let me know what I’m missing.
I misread your comment. Yes, I think the sticker is a joke (or maybe, as somebody else noted, it means the guy rides for Uber Eats).
Probably an ubereats courier
Uber operates (or at least used to operate) scooter hailing services in many countries. It's just like the Uber you know and hate here, but they pick you up on a scooter, not in a car.
