Ridepanda’s shift from D2C micromobility platform to corporate e-bike supplier

Ridepanda launched in 2020 as a direct-to-consumer micromobility platform, a marketplace for high-quality e-scooters and e-bikes. The founders, alumni at shared micromobility companies Lime, Bird and Scoot, sensed the shift away from shared and toward small electric vehicle ownership and wanted to capitalize on it.


The Best Electric Scooters to Buy

Here are some scooter options to get scooting on your own terms. If you’re unsure where to even start, e-scooter shopping site Ridepanda lets you plug in planned uses (for commutes, long flat rides, family trips) and important features like range or speed, and spits out many possible matches across a wide range of quality levels and prices.
