How To Connect Ninebot IAP to a Converted Rental Ninebot ESX

February 7th, 2020

Rideshare companies have been notoriously bad at picking up their towed vehicles, so it’s not uncommon to be able to pick up Ninebot Scooters from companies like Lyft and Bird that can be legally yours and rideable without having to pay each time.
