Skip announced a number of great updates to the Washington D.C. Ranger program (DC, Arlington, and Alexandria) which went into effect on Thursday, May 2, 2019.
16 Hour Drop Off Rule
When you pick up a scooter you will have 16 hours to charge and drop off at a Drop Zone for a full payout.
If you drop off more than 16 hours after pickup or outside of a Drop Zone your payout will be $1.
To receive the fastest payout, drop off scooters before 7:00 AM. Dropping off after 7:00 AM will add an extra day to the payment cycle.
All-Day Drop Offs
You can now drop off fully charged scooters at any time and receive a full payout if it occurs within 16 hours after pickup and is in an active Drop Zone.
During the morning, between 4:00 AM and 7:00 AM, we will have our largest supply of Drop Zones available. Outside of this window, the overall number of Drop Zones will be reduced.
When you see a $3 bounty on the map this means the scooter is ready to be repositioned.
How It Works: Pick up a scooter, but instead of taking it home to charge, bring it to a Drop Zone within 2 hours for full payout.
Repositioned scooters dropped off after 2 hours will receive a $1 payout.
Re-positioning at 20th & K St. NW
A $3 bounty at the corner of 20th and K St. NW means we have scooters ready to be repositioned from inside our building to another Drop Zone.
When you arrive at the location text our support line at 415.***.**** and we will provide scooters on a first come first serve basis.
Extended Repair Drop Hours (7:00PM to 7:00AM)
Repair scooters dropped off within 16 hours of pickup at the corner of 20th and K St. NW will receive full payment. Scooters dropped off after 16 hours will receive a $1 payout.
Repair scooters do not need to be charged to receive a full payout.
Overall, I like the changes. Skip listened to its D.C. Rangers and made necessary changes. My favorite changes are the new extended repair drop hours and all-day drop offs. I live 30 minutes away from the nearest Skip Drop Zone. These updates will definitely help me plan better and provide more opportunity to earn more money.
