Am I The Only One Who Thinks The Electric Scooters Are Cool For Asbury Park, New Jersey?
As you probably know by now, I have been broadcasting LIVE on the Asbury Park Boardwalk every Saturday during the summer. I love working on the legendary boardwalk and overall I greatly appreciate the Asbury Park experience.

The LINK electric scooters have been a topic of discussion all year. Most of the people that I talk to think it's a dangerous attraction but I'm going to disagree. When I am driving to the boardwalk and leaving town to go back to Wall Township, I see nothing but smiling faces driving the scooters. People are having fun and for the most part, staying safe. I haven't heard of any horror stories about people riding these things, have you? Sure, maybe someone will take a tough spill once in a while, but in the grand scheme of things, people are enjoying their electric scooter experience.
Just the other day, I joined the fun for a quick ride from the boardwalk to my car, which was parked three blocks down the road. I felt like a total nerd riding alone but I enjoyed it! There was a nice breeze blowing on my face, I didn't have to walk in the ninety-degree heat, and I was in a rush to get home. I just can't be that person who talks down about these electric scooters. It's hip and a new wave city experience...
Scooter share provides residents, employees, and visitors with an electric foot scooter to rent for a quick errand, a trip to the beach, or a climate-friendly commute. Riders can rent the nearest available scooter, ride it to where they want to go, and leave it responsibly parked for the next person to ride.
The City of Asbury Park has selected LINK powered by Superpedestrian to deploy an electric scooter share program across the entire City starting May 21, 2021. The program includes up to 250 scooters stationed at over 50 designated parking locations around Asbury Park.
In selecting the LINK team to help launch Asbury Park’s e-mobility project, the City is sure to receive quality products and commitment from the experienced e-scooter provider. These scooters will be equipped with front and rear safety lights, a bell and a speed limiter of up to 12mph. They will be available for rent Monday to Sunday from 7am to 9pm for riders 18 years and older.
