"I am thrilled Hoboken is leading the way for the rest of the state to implement an additional mode of green transportation," Ravi S. Bhalla, the mayor of Hoboken, said in a statement. "Electric scooters will help residents easily travel around our city, reduce congestion on our roadways, and improve access to transit stations and
OjO offers an electric scooter rideshare program committed to collaborating with local governments to reduce traffic congestion and carbon emissions. Built for the bike lane and streets, off sidewalks and away from pedestrians, the OjO scooter is a safe, sustainable and structurally sound scooter for today's rapidly rideshare market. OjO has a swappable battery that allows it to go up to 25 miles on a full electric charge. OjO is initially permitted for 50 scooters in Hoboken, and currently is also permitted to operate in Austin, Texas and Dallas, Texas. OjO customers enjoy longer rides than typical kick-scooter riders, and increased mileage traveled, helping to reduce cars on the road and
"We are excited to bring OjO to Hoboken and be an integral part of the first scooter deployment in the tri-state area. We believe this area of the country is ripe for mobility improvements, and the cities and residents stand to benefit greatly, said Max Smith, CEO of OjO Electric. " The OjO scooter is a far different product than all of the kick-scooters in the market from a safety, quality and comfort standpoint, but the real difference maker for city planners and customers alike is usage and range. While kick-scooters are used for short trips, OjO is providing a true alternative to cars in the micro-mobility space by servicing longer trips."
P3GM will provide operational support to OjO with boots on the ground in Hoboken and oversee OjO scooter deployment, balancing, service, repair and 24/7 customer service telephone support line. P3GM will utilize existing JerseyBike stations for scooter parking and will work with OjO to determine optimal neighborhood deployments.
OjO and P3GM will share data on scooter usage and ride trends, which is possible with the scooter's on-board telemetry system with live-feed data transmission to share vehicle performance and information. This will help optimize the performance as well as address any potential maintenance issues. This functionality is in line with OjO's mandate to ensure maximum rider safety and superior user experience.
On the heels of its successful launches in Austin, Dallas and Hoboken, OjO is gearing up to expand to additional markets in 2019 and will continue to work with experienced logistic companies to manage their operations. OjO has permit applications pending in several top 25 markets that are made up of the infrastructure and mobility offerings where OjO's rideshare program makes good sense.
