Uber disposes of tens of thousands of bikes and E-scooters
Uber is sending thousands of E-bikes and E-scooters to a scrap yard.
The tech company confirmed Wednesday that it had sent the bikes and scooters to a North Carolina metal recycling center.
The decision to destroy them angered cycling advocates and others who said Uber should have done more to find a useful purpose for the electronic bikes and scooters.
Uber said it had no choice because the E-bikes and E-scooters require a high level of maintenance and because another company, Lime, now owns the intellectual property rights behind the designs.
