Oggy are a locally owned & operated small family business, thanks for supporting us!
Oggy E-Scooters is a Sunshine Coast based, family run business changing the way we travel in a way that is light on the pocket and the planet. We want people to #rideoggy rather than get all hot and bothered in their cars and be able to visit all the fabulous sites the Coast has to offer.
It costs just $1 to unlock, and then 30c/min to ride and 7c/min on pause. Want to ride all day? Choose 'day hire' for $55 on the promos page in the app. It's time to give it a go and #rideoggy today!
And what's the difference between 'rideshare' and 'private hire' you ask? Our rideshare scooters are located at Oggy parking hubs (see the app or this map for locations) which you simply scan through the app to ride with no booking necessary, and our private hired scooters are delivered to your location for your private use, multi-day discounts available. Call our booking line to arrange.
You must be 21 or older to have an oggy account. An adult rider may unlock up to four scooters at once (just hit the + button after your first ride starts) and can unlock for children as long as they are 12 or older. Strictly one rider per scooter (doubling is illegal in Queensland) and minors must be actively supervised at all times while on a ride. To be very clear, this means travelling as a group, not letting children ride away from you.
Ever seen those cities where e-scooters are randomly dumped any old place? Did that look lovely? Nah, we don't think so either. Enjoy your ride, then return to any of our hubs to end your ride. Check the map for hub locations. You can pause at any location and your scooter will remain running on your account at the reduced cost of 7c/minute.
Want to stop and take in the views? Grab a coffee, have a swim or visit the shops? With Oggy Scooters, you can do this by using the convenient and cost effective 'pause' function in your app. The cost drops down to 7c/min ($4.20/hr) giving you more time to shop, play or explore. This is a fabulous feature unique to Oggy Scooters.
Being a small, local family business, we value safety over profit. Oggy rides can start from 5am daily, and no new rides can start after 6pm (5.30pm on dark winter nights) with all rides ending by 6.30pm. Riding in the dark not only increases the likelihood that a rider may choose to ride while affected by alcohol, but obstructions in the path or road surface are also so much harder to see and may contribute to an incident. We are proud to have an impeccable safety record and want to keep it that way!
You may only travel at a maximum of 12km/hr when on a pathway (Queensland Police may fine you for exceeding this). On bike paths you may travel at 25km/hr, which is the maximum speed we have allowed all our scooters to go. Further - we reduce speeds to 6km/hr in areas where you'd obviously want to go slower e.g. near playgrounds and within the grounds of many of the resorts and hotels we operate from. These speed reductions happen automatically when your scooter enters these zones.
We at Oggy Scooters think you should be the change you want to see in the world, and are proud members of the Sunshine Coast Sustainability Program. We believe that it is possible to attract visitors who share the values of contributing to a sustainable destination. To that end, we've partnered with Visit Sunshine Coast and Reforest (a Brisbane based social enterprise), which offers visitors a way to understand their impact on the local environment by answering a few quick questions about their trip to the Sunshine Coast. Tips on reducing your footprint are provided, and visitors can remove emissions by planting trees in local projects. Take part here.
