Rethinking Urban Transportation

A mission of mobility and sustainability

We’re on a mission to change the way people move – from work to home and everywhere in between. We are a sustainable micro-mobility company that’s making an impact in our communities and building the future we want to live in.

What we stand for

We started Ridy to be part of the change, part of the green revolution that’s taking our cities by storm. We knew the old model was broken, and that it was up to our generation to start taking big strides. We’re a diverse team of tech enthusiasts and transportation pros who are putting our skills, our hearts, and our energy into the cause – making cities more sustainable. Though we tap into university backed research and our Silicon Valley startup chops, we’re not entirely straitlaced. We nerd out over AI, robots, and self driving cars. We run, hike, and cultivate exotic plants. And of course, we love scooters and bikes because they’re sustainable, but also because they’re fun.
