Gotcha E-scooters and Bikes

Gotcha Mobility

Gotcha Mobility's bikeshare rental and pilot e-scooter program provides affordable, short-term bike and e-scooter rentals on campus.

The e-scooter pilot program will be evaluated in September 2020 to determine how successful e-scooter rentals are on campus.

E-scooter rental

E-scooters are available for short-term rental at six hub locations through the Gotcha Mobility app. While helmets are not provided with the e-scooter rental, we strongly encourage you to wear a helmet while riding.

E-scooter operators must abide by the Campus Transportation Policies for the University of North Carolina at Charlotte

It is especially important for e-scooter operators to be aware of the following:

  • E-scooters must be parked in a designated e-scooter hub. 
  • Failure to return an e-scooter to a designated hub at the end of a reservation will result in a fine. 
  • Riders must walk e-scooters through restricted areas. Scooters are programmed to reduce speeds to no more than six miles per hour in restricted areas.
  • E-scooters may not be operated off campus, during adverse weather or at night (8 p.m. to 7 a.m.).
  • EPIC building (next to ADA parking)
  • Reese building (near Colvard)
  • East Deck 2
  • South Village Crossing
  • Student Union
  • Wallis Hall (near bus pull off)

Gotcha e-scooters require a quick kick to get started. Plant your foot and give it a couple pushes before hitting the throttle with your right hand. 

You must return your e-scooter to one of the six designated e-scooter hubs. If you park outside of our service area (marked with a red outline in the app), you may be charged a $50 out-of-system fee.
