Launch of new electric moped service in Austin, TX raises concerns for some about parking (video report)

Drivers may notice Austinites using another type of ride-sharing service later this week.

On Friday, people can start renting electric motorcycles from a company called Revel. A launch event for the fleet of 1,000 mopeds is planned that morning outside Austin City Hall.

Frank Reig, the Revel CEO and co-founder, stressed that these mopeds are different from all the scooters and e-bicycles that people can rent right now.
