A Swedish start-up company named Cangoroo announced plans to deploy pogo sticks in select cities to directly compete with e-scooters as a transportation option. San Francisco CBS provides details on the launch of the pogo sticks rental in San Francisco:
On Friday, Cangoroo CEO and co-founder Adam Mikkelsen said his company chose San Francisco as one of its launch cities because of its reputation as place of innovation.
He added that Cangoroo could start deploying anywhere between 100 and 200 pogo sticks in San Francisco as early as late summer or possibly in the fall.
Mikkelsen said Cangoroo would be ready to work with city officials, including the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, on regulations and safety before launching the product.
Would you use pogo sticks as a mode of transportation, should it be made available in your city?
