Lyft, Uber, Citibike, Indego: There is new kid in town! Earlier this month, a Swedish-based mobility company announced the launch of Cangoroo, an app-based pogo stick sharing service.
The company plans to deploy hundreds of pogo sticks this summer in select cities to directly complete with electric scooters as a transportation option. Cangoroo is expected to be on street corners in San Francisco, as well as, Paris, Stockholm, London and Malmö, a city in Sweden.
It will cost $1 to unlock a pogo stick, and after that you pay 30 cents per minute. Those prices could vary from city to city.
Cangaroo advertises the pogo sticks as fun, healthy, convenient and 100% emission free.
No word yet on if the company will bring the pogo sticks to Philadelphia.
