Bolt Mobility, LLC (stylized as BOLT, in Europe as B Mobility) is a micromobility and Last Mile transport company founded by 9-time Olympic gold-medalist Usain Bolt and CEO Sarah Pishevar Haynes. Bolt was created in 2018 in Miami Beach, FL where the company's headquarters are located. Bolt currently rents dockless scooters for $1 dollar to initiate the ride and for 15¢ a minute afterwards. Bolt operates in a number of cities in the United States and Europe, including Miami, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., London, and Paris.
Bolt's devices are available for rent through their mobile app, available on the iOS App Store and Google Play. Bolt scooters can be found via in-app locators, which notify users of available nearby scooters.
Bolt was created in 2018 by a team including Usain Bolt, co-CEOs Sarah Pishevar Haynes & Kamyar Kaviani, and CTO Keith Siilats. The startup has also been backed by a number of angel investors and Venture Capital firms. Founded in Miami, Bolt has maintained their headquarters there since. Bolt's first market was in Fort Lauderdale, close to the company headquarters. The first scooters launched in December 2018. Over the course of 2019, the company gradually launched across the U.S. and internationally.
All Bolt scooters feature swappable batteries. These batteries allow scooters to be recharged without the need to house scooters. Bolt "boosters", subcontractors of the company, can bring a fully charged battery to a powerless scooter, which recharges the scooter instantly.
In March 2019, Bolt presented their Chariot, their third generation scooter model. The Chariot has an aluminum frame, 10 inch wheels, swappable batteries, a storage bin for bags or purses, cup holders, phone holders, and like the other Bolt scooters, footrests that face forward. The Chariot is based on the Xiaomi-manufactured scooter that is used by both Lime and Bird.[not in citation given]
The Bolt Nano is a two-seated electric car created to travel longer distances than the Bolt scooters. These vehicles can be charged with the same swappable batteries as the Bolt scooters. The first generation prototype of the Bolt Nano was revealed in May 2019 at the VivaTech conference and are set to be officially released in 2020.
