The user installs the Grin app, on which are displayed all the scooters available (tracked by GPS) near you. Before starting a trip, the user supplies payment information. The user then scans the QR code on the scooter, beginning the trip. To end the trip, the user parks the scooter responsibly (preferably curbside) then ends the ride though the app. The price of the trip is immediately withdrawn from the user’s credit card. After parking the scooter, it is required to take a photo of it showing its surroundings; this is to help the next user find the vehicle. If any problems were encountered with the trip (like a malfunctioning vehicle) the user can report that through the app.

Operating Area[edit]

On the Grin app, the user can see the operating area of the service. Riding outside of the operating area is tolerated, but if the user leaves the scooter outside the operating area, they will be charger with a fee of R$ 30,00.

Operating Hours[edit]

Since the scooters need to be recharged every night, Grin has set daily operating hours for when the service is available: 7 am to 10 pm. These operating hours apply to every city Grin has operations in, with the exception of Rio de Janeiro, in which Grin operates from 8 am to 9 pm. Grin operates every day of the week.









Grin uses the Segway Ninebot ES1 and recently the newer ES2 model. The ES2 model can reach speeds of up to 25 km/h. The ES2 is often considered the best electric scooter on the market, along with the Xiaomi Mi.


Grin charges a fixed rate of R$ 3,00 when unlocking the scooter, then charges R$ 0,50/min.

Merge with Yellow[edit]

Grin and Yellow have merged together to create Grow Mobility, founded in 2019. Like Grin and Yellow, Grow Mobility focuses on micro-mobility transportation.

User Collaborations[edit]


Grin offers the ability to let their users become chargers as a part-time job. These “chargers” collect scooters that are out of battery (mostly during the night), and then transport them to their location (like a house) to charge them for the night. The next morning, by 7 am, the scooters must be released outside for users to unlock them. These “chargers” are paid based on how many scooters they charge. When applying to become a charger, Grin will provide the chargers required for the scooters.


Grin users, most preferably business owners (like bars and shops) can opt to have a Grin station in front of their business to further attract clients, by providing a method of transportation.



Since Grin is a dockless electric scooter sharing system, it does not provide parking stations, therefore the scooters can be left almost anywhere. Due to this, the scooters can sometimes be found parked on the sidewalk, in disabled parking spaces, in front of garage entrances, etc. Grin strongly encourages to park responsibly curbside, at its stations or at bike racks.


Grin, and many other dockless electric scooter sharing companies, are often criticized for their relatively high prices, especially when compared to public transportation. The companies defend themselves by saying that the cost to buy, charge, and maintain the scooters are high; this is also not considering the research and development to make the service possible (like the app).
