We are getting around greener and softer in the city. More seven hundred new scooters are available for ride-sharing service and soon the option of Porto residents may also include bicycles.
The 700 new scooters are powered by electricity and owned by BOLT, the leading European mobility platform that takes “safety and well-being of users” as “of paramount importance”, and which began operating in Porto in the last weekend of July.
The company guarantees that the vehicles “are equipped with a series of innovative features, such as, for example, a cognitive reaction test capable of assessing whether the user has consumed alcoholic beverages, and an intelligent parking system for checking if the scooter was well parked”.
Besides BOLT, 900 zero-emission scooters from BIRD and the 700 managed by CIRC are already running in Porto, which will soon make electric bicycles available.
In view of the growth in the use of the soft mode sharing system, during the month of August the sharing points will have more scooters in the areas with the greatest demand for this type of transport, with an increase in total capacity of over 140 vehicles.
