“It’s time to take the transportation industry to the next level!!! #ScootEbike is now owned by #Loopshare and we have a better way to bring structure in the bike sharing space,” he wrote. “I can’t wait for you to see what we have in store!!! Get ready for the takeover! – big thanks to @diddy @quincy@kingcombs @princejdc for being the first to support the brand!!”

LOOPShare will reportedly provide users with a choice of three different types of scooter models to rent: traditional sit-down bike style, a stand-alone, and also a Vespa-like vehicle.
