Superpedestrian scooters are now in Google Maps

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - September 23, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

E-scooter riders can now locate Superpedestrian's bright yellow shared scooters in the Google Maps mobile app, making it easier for riders to plan trips, including their first and last mile to public transit. Integrating Superdestrian's real-time locations into Google maps is a crucial step for making e-scooters a reliable and easy-to-use form of everyday transport. With the app, riders can plan their multimodal journey alongside real-time transit and rideshare information. 

"People use our scooters for all kinds of trips, often using them in conjunction with public transit, walking, and rideshare," said Jamie Perkins, Director of Communications at Superpedestrian. "It's important to us that our riders are supported with the best tools for planning their trip, and integrating with Google Maps is an obvious necessity to ensure riders can create plans and also change their plans on a whim." 

Superpedestrian's integration is currently live in cities across the United States, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Portugal. This is just the latest integration for Superpedestrian, which is also discoverable in apps, including Moovit, Transit, Citymapper, Wegfinder, Velocia, and Urbi.

How it works

Riders can find Superpedestrian scooters in Google Maps' bike section when planning their trip. In addition to real-time location, Google Maps will also display the scooter's battery range, estimated cost and trip travel time. When users select the scooter option, they will be directed to the Superpedestrian app to unlock the scooter. 

To ride a Superpedestrian scooter, simply download the Superpedestrian mobile app from the iOS or Android app store. Once you find a Superpedestrian scooter, be sure the throttle LED is GREEN, which means the scooter is available to rent. Then scan the scooter's QR code (located on top of the handlebars) via the Superpedestrian app to unlock it. Wait up to 10 seconds for the throttle LED to turn WHITE, indicating that the scooter is unlocked and ready to ride. 

About Superpedestrian: Superpedestrian was spun out of MIT in 2013 with the mission to develop the world's smartest and safest light electric vehicle fleets. In 2020, Superpedestrian debuted the LINK Scooter, heralded as "The Volvo of e-Scooters" for its patented Vehicle Intelligence platform that actively prevents costly mechanical and electrical hazards that beset other e-scooter operators. Named one of Fast Company's Most Innovative Transportation Companies of 2022, Superpedestrian has become a world leader in transportation robotics and human-scale mobility, holding over 40 patents in autonomous failure protection for vehicles, automated maintenance software, fleet optimization, and vehicle context awareness.

Disruptive Technology Start-Up RedCarpet™ Ships World-Famous Chicago and New York Pizza to Consumers Nationwide
RedCarpet\u2122 Mobile Distribution Center\u2122 (MDC)

The RedCarpet\u2122 MDC is the first of its kind delivery method in the industry, and is critical to how the company delivers world-class pizza to its customers' doorsteps nationwide.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - December 3, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

For two entrepreneurs, best friends, and passionate foodies, the RedCarpet™ story began in 2021 by scratching their own itch: "Why can't we get some of that great pizza from Chicago delivered to our doors?" asked Sean Bandawat, founder of RedCarpet™. Today, nearly a year and a half later, Bandawat and co-founder Michael Mulé have developed their proprietary technology platform, formed relationships with key suppliers, built a sophisticated fulfillment network, and proved demand with a growing log of orders being shipped daily to consumers across the country.

Scottsdale-based RedCarpet™ is an innovative technology company providing nationwide pizza delivery from top-rated pizzerias in the heart of Chicago and New York, the undisputed pizza capitals of America. Whether you want to order pizza from your favorite out-of-state pizzeria but can't due to long-distance barriers, or want to try iconic pizzerias with cult followings located in faraway places, or live in a remote area without easy access to your favorite pizzerias, RedCarpet™ makes the most authentic neighborhood pizzerias available to you—all at the power of your fingertips.

"On the consumer side, creating accessibility to pizza that previously didn't exist is at the heart of what we do," says Bandawat. Mulé adds, "We're also providing our partnered pizzerias with unprecedented nationwide distribution." This means that with RedCarpet™ you can eat like a local from the comfort of your own home, no longer having to travel to experience the best pizza from Chicago and New York. It also means locally owned and operated pizzerias benefit from unparalleled marketing exposure.

Using a variety of different variables—from food quality to taste to notoriety—every pizzeria on the RedCarpet™ platform is individually curated by the company's team of "trusted pizza fanatics", with less than 1% of all local pizzerias hand-selected. Ordering is a simple 3-step process: (1) scour the most authentic pizzerias New York and Chicago have to offer, curated by RedCarpet™; (2) their Mobile Distribution Center™ (MDC) will flash freeze and pack & ship your order; (3) you'll receive your award-winning pizza in days, shipped on dry ice direct to your door.

A pioneer in the nationwide pizza delivery space, RedCarpet™ is targeting an industry that is ripe for disruption. The technology offered by RedCarpet™ promises to do more than change the Internet. This promising start-up could very well change the world.
