PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY. IT SETS FORTH THE LEGALLY BINDING TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES. CAPITALIZED TERMS HAVE THE MEANINGS GIVEN TO THEM WHERE DEFINED IN THIS AGREEMENT.

Welcome to Revel!
DOWNLOAD THE APP, HOP ON, AND GO!
Welcome to Revel, an all-electric moped rideshare built to make getting around fast, affordable and way more fun! We were founded on the idea that there’s a better way around. That’s why our goal isn’t just to get you to your destination. It’s to help you make your way.
As a first step, you will need to become a Member before you may access the Services and the Revel Mopeds. Just download the App which can be found on the Site, Google Play, or the Apple App Store, and register quickly and easily. You only need a valid driver’s license, credit card and safe driving record to register.
- BEFORE EACH USE OF A MOPED, MEMBER SHALL CONDUCT A BASIC SAFETY INSPECTION OF THE MOPED PURSUANT TO THE RULES. THE FIRST MINUTE OF THE RIDE IS FREE TO ALLOW MEMBER TO CONDUCT THE REQUIRED SAFETY CHECK. MEMBER AGREES NOT TO RIDE IF THERE ARE ANY NOTICEABLE ISSUES AND TO IMMEDIATELY NOTIFY REVEL OF ANY PROBLEMS.
- BEFORE ENDING A RIDE, MEMBERS MUST RETURN THE MOPED CLEAN AND IN GOOD WORKING CONDITION TO A LOCATION WITH AVAILABLE PARKING WITHIN THE HOME ZONE AND THE MOPED MUST BE PARKED PURSUANT TO THE RULES AND AT A LOCATION THAT IS FREE FROM STREET CLEANING, SWEEPING, OR OTHER SIMILAR SERVICES SPELLED OUT CLEARLY BY PERMANENT OR TEMPORARY SIGNS FOR A 24-HOUR PERIOD AFTER PARKING.
- RIDING A MOPED IN CITY TRAFFIC IS A HIGH-RISK ACTIVITY. DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY IS POSSIBLE. MUCH LIKE OTHER RENTAL SERVICES, REVEL DOES NOT PROVIDE HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE.
- MEMBER ASSUMES FULL AND COMPLETE RESPONSIBILITY AND LIABILITY, FOR THEMSELVES AND FOR ANY AUTHORIZED PASSENGER, FOR ALL RELATED RISKS, DANGERS, AND HAZARDS.
- YOUR PERSONAL INSURANCE POLICIES MAY NOT PROVIDE COVERAGE FOR ACCIDENTS INVOLVING THE USE OF A MOPED. TO DETERMINE IF COVERAGE IS PROVIDED, YOU SHOULD CONTACT YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY OR AGENT PRIOR TO USING THE SERVICE.

3.0 General Rental and Use of Moped.
3.01 Compliance with Rules. Member agrees to comply with all the Rules set forth herein and in Appendix A attached hereto.
3.02 Fees. Member may use the Moped on a pay per ride basis or as otherwise in accordance with the pricing described pursuant to the Rate Schedule. In each case, fees and other charges may be subject to applicable taxes and other local government charges, which may be charged and collected by Revel. Revel will charge the Member, and Member agrees to pay Revel, all applicable fees for the Services pursuant to the Rate Schedule.
3.03 Pick Up Fees. If the Member requests that the Moped be picked up by Revel staff because Member is unable to return a Moped to a valid area (i.e. Member deactivates the Moped on private property, a locked community, or another unreachable area), or if the battery charge on the Moped runs out in an unreachable area or outside of the Home Zone, then Revel, at its sole discretion, may choose to charge Member a pick-up fee of up to $150, as well as any applicable toll and ticket fees. If any Moped accessed under Member’s account is abandoned without notice, Member will be responsible for all trip fees and any applicable toll and ticket fees until the Moped is recovered and deactivated, plus a service charge (currently up to $150) to recover the Moped. Fees are subject to change.
3.04 Payment. Member represents and warrants to Revel that Member is authorized to use any credit or debit card Member furnishes to Revel. Member authorizes Revel to charge the card for all fees incurred by Member. All fees are subject to applicable sales taxes and other local government charges, which may be charged and collected by Revel. All fees and costs are due when they are incurred, including but not limited to Registration Fees, and all other costs and fees as provided in the Rate Schedule. Temporary or prepaid credit/debit cards are not an acceptable form of payment.
3.05 Pre-Authorization. Revel may place a temporary hold your credit/debit card before a rental to verify that your payment information is still valid or in certain instances to verify that your credit/debit card has the necessary funds to cover Revel’s fees and costs. Pre-authorization is not a charge to your account, it is a hold on those funds. Once your actual charge is posted to your account it can take up to thirty (30) days for the original pre-authorization to be removed by your bank. It is your responsibility to be aware of how your bank handles all of your transactions, including pre-authorizations.
3.06 Taxes. While using the Services, Member is responsible for all applicable governmental taxes, including sales, use, or VAT, as applicable. Applicable taxes will be added to Member’s bill.
3.07 Disputed Charges. If Member disputes any charge on Member’s credit or debit card account, then Member must contact Revel within thirty (30) days of the date of the disputed charge, and provide to Revel all trip information that is necessary to identify the disputed charge, such as the date of the trip and the approximate starting and ending times of the ride associated with the disputed charge. If no notice is given by Member to Revel within the foregoing thirty (30) day period, the charge will be final.
3.08 Delinquent Accounts. Members are billed for amounts due via credit/debit card, or other means as established by Revel. Any Member account which is past due will be suspended by Revel. If payment of any amount due is rejected by the credit/debit card provided by the Member, Membership, and the use of the Services, may be suspended or terminated by Revel, in its sole discretion. Members are responsible for providing and maintaining current credit/debit card information on file with Revel. Ongoing issues with credit/debit card billings may result in termination of Membership. Under no circumstances will Revel be responsible for any overdraft or other fees charged by a Member’s credit/debit card bank. In addition, Revel may engage third parties to collect amounts owed to Revel by a Member and the Member will also be responsible for any collection or similar fees associated with these collection activities. Revel also reserves the right to charge interest on overdue charges at the lesser of the rate of 1.5% per month or the highest rate allowable by applicable law.
3.09 No Refunds. Except as set forth above under “Disputed Fees”, once charged all fees are final and nonrefundable. This includes but is not limited to the Registration Fees, even if the applicant is subsequently denied use of the Services following registration.
4.0 Damages; Liability Coverage.
4.02 Lost or Stolen Moped. A Moped may be deemed lost or stolen if (a) the Moped is not returned within twenty-four (24) consecutive hours, (b) the Moped’s GPS unit is disabled, (c) the Moped is parked on unauthorized private property, in a locked area, or in any other non-public space after a ride ends, (d) the Moped moves more than thirty (30) feet after a rental has ended and Revel believes such movement was not caused by another Member or authorized third party, or (e) other facts and circumstances that suggest to Revel in its reasonable, good faith determination that a Moped has been lost or stolen. If Revel deems a Moped lost or stolen and the loss or theft was not reported by Member to Revel pursuant to the reporting requirements set forth below in this Agreement, Revel shall have the authority to take any and all actions it deems appropriate (with respect to the last Member to use the Moped or otherwise), including (without limitation) obtaining restitution and other appropriate compensation and damages and filing a police report with local authorities. Member agrees the data generated by Revel’s computer is conclusive evidence of the period of use of a Moped by a Member.
5.0 Member Responsibilities.
5.02 Driving Record. If the Member’s license to operate a motorized vehicle (which includes a license to operate a motorized two-wheeled vehicle such as the Moped) is suspended or revoked or becomes invalid for any reason, if the Member has any further endorsements or accidents on their driving record, or if the Member is convicted of or receives a citation for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, dangerous or reckless driving, or exceeding the relevant speed limit, the Member agrees to report such suspension, revocation, changes, conviction or citation to Revel immediately and the Member’s right to access and/or use Revel Mopeds and the Services may immediately cease. Failure to immediately notify Revel of any such events, or providing Revel with any false information may lead to the Member not being covered by Revel’s liability insurance policy when driving a Revel Moped and/or termination of Membership.
5.03 Lesson. Revel provides a voluntary Lesson free-of-charge, which is a complimentary tutorial provided by Revel to new Members to orient them with the proper use of Mopeds and consists of a brief riding session and short introduction to the Moped. To be eligible for a Lesson, users must have completed the Registration process through the App. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Revel, at its sole discretion, may require an Applicant to attend a Lesson as a condition to Membership. Revel notes, and Member agrees, that the Lesson is not, and is not intended to be, a lesson with certified training professionals. Successful completion of the Lesson or a Required Lesson does not automatically make a Member eligible to use the Services. Eligibility is in Revel’s sole discretion.
5.04 Accidents. If, while Member has an ongoing ride with a Moped, the Moped is involved in an accident with another vehicle or an incident resulting in damage to a third party (including to an Authorized Passenger), then first and foremost immediately call 911 and seek any medical attention you and/or an Authorized Passenger require. Member must contact the police and fill out a police report, contact Revel within one (1) hour or, in the event of injury to the Member, as soon as reasonably practicable following the accident or incident, through the damage reporting feature on the App (located in the “Help” section) or by contacting Revel’s customer service by phone (855-690-9180). If your injuries do not prevent you from doing so, you must stay at the scene until the police finish their report and allow you to leave. As soon as practicable following the incident, Member agrees to provide to Revel all of the information below:
- Details, circumstance, and location of the incident (time, address, relevant details of the accident);
- Relevant information for any vehicles or third party involved (e.g., license plate, names, phone number, and driver’s license number of any persons involved, VIN, make and model, vehicle color);
- Insurance materials of all parties involved (e.g., policy number, name, insurance provider);
- Witness contact information (e.g., name, address, phone number);
- Insurance information for your personal motor vehicle policy, if applicable;
- Photographs of any damage to the Revel Moped or of other vehicles involved; and
- A copy of the police report.
Member agrees to fully cooperate with Revel, investigators, and insurance partners in the event of an accident or damages to any third-party person (including to an Authorized Passenger) or property. In the case of noncooperation, Revel reserves the right to withdraw liability coverage above legally-mandated minimums. Member confirms that any legal case in relation to an incident involving a Member and third party may be settled by Revel in Member’s name in Revel’s sole discretion.
5.05 Member Responsibility for Theft or Loss of Moped. Except as may be specified otherwise herein, Member is solely responsible for what happens to all Revel property while it is on an ongoing ride of Member. This includes, without limitation: any theft of, loss of, or damage to a Moped, the Safety Helmet, or any other equipment.
6.0 Indemnification; Limitation of Liability.
6.01 Indemnification. Member agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold Revel, its affiliates, and its and their respective, officers, directors, shareholders, partners, employees and agents (collectively referred to herein as “Revel”) harmless from and against all damages, losses, claims, liabilities, injuries, demands, costs, and expenses of any kind (including but not limited to reasonable attorneys’ fees) (collectively, “Losses”) incurred by Revel arising out of, resulting from, or related to Member’s use or rental of a Moped.
6.02 LIMITATION OF REVEL’S LIABILITY. Except to the extent any loss or damage is ultimately determined to be due SOLELY to Revel’s gross negligence or willful misconduct:
- REVEL IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF MEMBER’S RENTAL OR USE OF A MOPED OR THE SERVICES. REVEL MAKES NO WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO ANY MATTER WHATSOEVER INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE CONDITION OF A MOPED, ITS MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. RIDING A MOPED IN CITY TRAFFIC IS A HIGH-RISK ACTIVITY. DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY IS POSSIBLE. HEAD-ON COLLISIONS ARE THE MOST COMMON AND FATAL TYPE OF MOPED CRASH. ACCIDENTS ALSO FREQUENTLY OCCUR ON LEFT HAND TURNS OR WHILE STOPPED AT A TRAFFIC INTERSECTION SINCE A MOPED IS MORE DIFFICULT FOR OTHER DRIVERS TO SEE. LANE SPLITTING CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ACCIDENTS AS WELL. OTHER COMMON REASONS BEHIND MANY MOPED ACCIDENTS (BUT NOT A COMPREHENSIVE LIST) INCLUDE POTHOLES, UNEVEN PAVEMENT, RIDING CARELESSLY IN INCLEMENT WEATHER, DEAD ANIMALS OR DEBRIS IN THE ROAD, SPEEDING, AND DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS OR ALCOHOL WHEN A MOPED ACCIDENT DOES HAPPEN, OFTENTIMES SERIOUS INJURIES OCCUR. SOME OF THE MORE COMMON ONES INCLUDE HEAD AND/OR BRAIN INJURY, NECK AND/OR SPINAL CORD INJURY, BACK INJURY, NERVE DAMAGE, LOSS OF HANDS, FEET, FINGERS AND OTHER LIMBS, PARALYSIS, AND DEATH.
- Revel is not accountable for any damage to the Member’s or Authorized Passenger’s persons or belongings that occurs while riding or operating a Moped, nor shall it be accountable for any harm to third parties (including to an Authorized Passenger) for the actions taken by any Member during the reservation period or use of a Moped. Revel makes every effort to ensure there are enough Mopeds for Members, but cannot guarantee availability or functionality of a Moped and is not responsible for any Member damages arising from Moped non-availability. Members can use Mopeds depending on availability as the Services are delivered in a real-time basis and cannot be reserved for a longer period ahead of time than as indicated in the App. Revel is not responsible for damages to a Member or Authorized Passenger due to the use of any Moped accessories (e.g., parking center stand or kick-stand, cell phone mount, helmet case, bag hook, or Safety Helmet). The Member is solely accountable for Moped accessories and must check their condition before each use. If any accessory is found to be faulty or not in working order, Member must promptly notify Revel and not use the accessory.
- ANY USE OF A MOPED PROHIBITED BY THIS AGREEMENT VOIDS ALL COVERAGES OR WARRANTIES (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO INSURANCE, ACCIDENT, OR LIABILITY COVERAGES); MAKES A MOPED SUBJECT TO IMMEDIATE RECOVERY BY REVEL WITHOUT NOTICE TO MEMBER; AND MAKES MEMBER RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL LOSS OR DAMAGE TO, OR CONNECTED WITH THE MOPED, INCLUDING REVEL EXPENSES, TO THE EXTENT THAT SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGE IS DUE TO SUCH PROHIBITED USE.
7.0 RELEASES; DISCLAIMERS; ASSUMPTION OF RISK.
In exchange for Member being allowed to use Revel Services, Mopeds, Safety Helmets, and other equipment or related information provided by Revel, Member agrees to fully release, indemnify, and hold harmless Revel and all of its owners, managers, affiliates, employees, contractors, officers, directors, shareholders, agents, representatives, successors, assigns, and to the fullest extent permitted by law any Municipality (including its elected and appointed officials, officers, employees, agents, contractors, and volunteers) with which the operators have contracted to provide Revel Services, and every sponsor of any of the Revel Services and all of the sponsor’s owners, managers, affiliates, employees, contractors, officers, directors, shareholders, agents, representatives, successors, and assigns (collectively, the “Released Persons”) from liability for all “Claims” arising out of or in any way related to Member’s use of the Revel Services, Mopeds, Safety Helmets, or related equipment, including, but not limited to, those Claims based on Released Persons’ alleged negligence, breach of contract, and/or breach of express or implied warranty, except for Claims based on Released Persons’ gross negligence or willful misconduct.

Your license must be kept on you at all times during a rental.

It is Member’s responsibility to make sure prior to initiating a ride that the Moped has adequate electric charge for the expected duration of the ride. Revel makes every effort to provide Revel Services 365 days per year, but does not guarantee that Revel Services will be available at all times, as weather conditions, unforeseen events or other circumstances might prevent Revel from providing the Revel Services.

Member Responsibility for Moped Use and Damage.

The Moped is an electric vehicle that requires periodic charging of its battery in order to operate. While as part of the Services, Revel endeavors to make sure the Moped is fully charged on a regular basis, it is Member’s responsibility to make sure prior to initiating a ride that the Moped has adequate electric charge for the expected duration of the ride. Member agrees to use and operate the Moped safely and prudently in light of the Moped being an electric vehicle and all of the limitations and requirements associated therewith. Member understands and agrees with each of the following:
- The level of charge power remaining in the Moped will decrease with use of the Moped (over both time and distance), and that as the level of charge power of the Moped decreases, the speed and other operational capabilities of the Moped may decrease (or cease in their entirety).
- The level of charging power in the Moped at the time Member initiates the rental or operation of the Moped is not guaranteed and will vary with each rental use.
- The rate of loss of charging power during the use of the Moped is not guaranteed and will vary based on the Moped, road conditions, weather conditions, and other factors.
- It is Member’s responsibility to check the level of charge power in the Moped and to ensure that it is adequate before initiating operation of the Moped.
- The distance and/or time that Member may operate the Moped before it loses charging power is never guaranteed.
- The Moped may run out of charging power and cease to operate at any time during Member’s rental of the Moped, including before reaching Member’s desired destination.
Charging of Vehicle.
If the Moped runs out of charging power during a rental, Member shall conclude the ride in compliance with all terms of this Agreement. Member may not charge, attempt to charge, or engage others to charge the Moped.
Use by Member and any Authorized Passenger of a Safety Helmet is always required for the use of Revel’s Services, regardless of whether required under local laws. As part of the Services, Revel provides Member and Authorized Passengers with the use of the Safety Helmets contained in the helmet case attached to each Moped. Revel and all other Released Persons do not represent or warrant the quality or safety characteristics of any Safety Helmet provided by Revel as part of the Services, and Member agrees that none of the Released Persons is liable for any injury suffered by Member and/or an Authorized Passenger while using a Safety Helmet provided by Revel for use of the Services. Member assumes all risk for themselves and for Authorized Passengers of not wearing a Safety Helmet or other protective gear. Member may need to take additional safety measures or precautions not specifically addressed in this Agreement.
Member agrees that Revel does not provide or maintain places to ride Mopeds, and that Revel does not guarantee that there will always be a safe place to ride a Moped. Roads, vehicle lanes, and vehicle routes may become dangerous due to weather, traffic, or other hazards.
