Defining the Peskin Ratio, and why (some) scooter networks fail

Teaching cities and scooter operators to work together.

How can we define short-term success, given a micro-mobility-first future is far out-of-reach?

Your Car’s Peskin Ratio = ~1 failure / 1000 trips = ~0.001

I used a log scale on the x-axis. This is typically far more compressed to the left.

What does this have to do with scooters?

A Peskin Ratio of 1. 😮
Peskin’s living his best life. 🤦‍♂️
(From personal experience)

So we should pick different scooter companies, right?
