Unagi expands e-scooter subscriptions in US

Unagi Scooters is expanding its e-scooter subscription service in the US for a second time this year, launching the service across Washington D.C., Northern Virginia and Chicago.

With an All-Access subscription, you can get a Model One for a flat monthly fee that includes maintenance and insurance for scooter theft or damage. Once subscribed, Unagi said it will deliver a Model One scooter to your door via FedEx within 72 hours.

Unagi offers two All-Access plans: a pay-as-you-go monthly plan for $49 per month and a discounted annual plan that works out to $39 a month.

The All-Access service was launched last summer in New York and LA. Based on consumer demand, Unagi added six more major metropolitan areas this spring, including Austin, Miami, Nashville, Phoenix, the San Francisco/Bay Area and Seattle.

In Chicago, the All-Access service will now be available across the entire city and across much of the Chicagoland region, including the cities of Aurora, Joliet, Naperville, Elgin, Cicero, Arlington Heights and Evanston, and other parts of Cook, DuPage, Joliet, Kane, McHenry and Will Counties.

In Northwest Indiana, the service will be available in Gary and Hammond, and across much of central and northern Lake County. This map shows the areas of the Chicagoland region where people can sign up for Unagi’s service.

In Washington, D.C., the All-Access service will be available across the entire city and the larger National Capital Region. In Maryland, this includes the cities of Bethesda, College Park, Gaithersburg, Germantown, Hyattsville, Potomac, Rockville and Silver Spring, among others, and much of the Capital Region.

In Virginia, it also includes the cities of Alexandria, Arlington, Herndon, McLean and Reston, and other parts of Fairfax, Loudon and Arlington Counties. This map shows the areas of Washington, Northern Virginia and Maryland where people can sign up for Unagi’s service.

With the addition of Chicago and Washington, D.C, the All-Access service is now available to more than 75 million people.
