What the hell BOLT?!?

Tried to use your scooters tonight. I have been riding for months and never once had an issue. Tonight, The only option that I was given was to put a 9.95 Deposit on to scooters. I’m riding by myself I don’t need to scooters. Also when I put down the deposit thinking I do the deposit and then I get the rest back, it didn’t unlock the scooter. This is colossal BS you need to put it back the way that it was because the other way works. Also you need to start cracking down on underage users, because on Fort Lauderdale beach I see people as young as six and seven years old riding scooters by themselves

Lots of Low Battery Scooters

The Blot app is super easy to use and the scooters are easy to ride once you get accustomed to them. This is the first weekend they are available in Richmond so it was pretty difficult to find one but I think that will calm down after everyone is done trying them out. The two biggest issues I noticed are that if a scooter has a low battery you can’t rent it but it still shows up on the map. There were a ton of scooters near us but all sitting at 14% or less battery and it won’t actually let you ride them when they are low. They should drop off that map is they aren’t available like that, it is really annoying clicking around on 15 nearby scooters to try and find one that is actually available. The map also doesn’t update automatically. When you finally find one nearby that is not on low battery by the time you walk there it has been grabbed by someone else but the map still shows it as available. You just have to keep killing the app and reopening it to see the most recent locations. It would be nice for the map to automatically refresh when someone picks up a scooter or at least have a way to manually refresh.

Dangerous — use another service like Lime

Horrible first (and last) experience with Bolt after many fantastic experiences with Lime, Lyft and Bird. They were incredibly hefty/ heavy, and slow which made them difficult to control and almost made my son(several times) crash into parked cars. It locked up and left both my scooter and my sons scooter in the street on a busy area of Los Angeles with NO WARNING. We had to get off the scooters on the street and they were too heavy for us to lift onto the sidewalk but while we were trying to lift them the speakers on the scooters came on telling us to let go or the police would be called. Outrageous!! The app wouldn’t let me end the ride so the time (and charges) racked up while I called Bolt to talk to someone who did end the ride. While I was on the phone the person kept saying it wasn’t Bolts fault... it somehow wasn’t bolts fault that their scooters shut down in the middle of the road. Outrageous again!!! Very poor service and the scooters are inferior to the other companies we’ve used — don’t use Bolt for your safety’s sake.
