The start up Cangoroo plans to deploy pogo sticks in Sweden this summer, after that in London and San Francisco. Besides transportation, the company is promoting the added element of fitness.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Maybe you've heard that a handful of American cities have been overtaken by electric scooters. But if scooting your way from point A to point B doesn't capture your real spirit, I give you the pogo stick. No joke - a startup called Cangoroo plans to deploy pogo sticks in Sweden this summer, after that, in London and San Francisco. They're promoting the added fitness element and, of course, the statement it makes, because nothing says I have arrived like a pogo stick.
