Now we see why Raleigh’s scooter monopolist can’t handle competition
How are things going for Gotcha, Raleigh's hand-picked scooter monopolist? The company just sent out a tweet. What's it say? Oh, dear.

Raleigh’s designated scooter monopolist seems … lost
Gotcha was made Raleigh's hand-picked scooter monopolist. But Gotcha's "Raleigh, NC Scooter Share" page has a slight problem. See if you can spot it.

Hm. Raleigh’s scooter monopoly dislikes competition.
The market for e-scooters is highly competitive. Other cities, including Charlotte and Durham, allow several scooter providers to compete for riders. Not Raleigh, however, despite at least seven companies trying to do business in the city limits.

Charlotte has its ABC’s of scooter safety. Raleigh’s must be Ain’t Brookin’ Competition.
With five scooter companies applying, does that mean people working, visiting, and enjoying downtown Raleigh will get to choose among five scooter providers? Oh no.
