E-scooter rental

Gotcha Bikes and E-scooters by the Student Union

E-scooters are available for short-term rental at 20 hub locations through the Gotcha Powered by Bolt app. While helmets are not provided with the e-scooter rental, we strongly encourage you to wear a helmet while riding.

E-scooter operators must abide by the Campus Transportation Policies for the University of North Carolina at Charlotte

E-scooter operators must be aware of the following:

  • E-scooters must be parked in a designated e-scooter hub. 
  • Failure to return an e-scooter to a designated hub at the end of a reservation will result in a $20 fine. The fine for leaving an e-scooter in an out-of-service area is $100.
  • Riders must walk e-scooters through restricted areas. Scooters are programmed to reduce speeds to no more than six miles per hour in restricted areas.
  • E-scooters may not be operated off-campus, during adverse weather or at night (10 p.m. to 6 a.m.).


Pedal-assist bikes are available for rental through the app at stations across campus.
