WASHINGTON - Four scooter companies will be leaving the District after their appeals failed, according to a report from WAMU.
On April 1, only four will remain – Jump, Lyft, Skip, and Spin.
WAMU pointed out that those were the four companies the District’s Department of Transportation said it would issue permits to last year. But other companies that failed to make the cut were permitted to operate while their appeals were considered.

Bird, Lime, Bolt, and Razor will all need to cease operations.
The DDOT told WAMU that they wanted to scale back the number of companies operating in the District so that they could provide better oversight.
At least one company, Lime, said it would continue trying to find ways to “keep serving D.C. residents.”
