Ride

Regular scooters can be used on the sidewalk. Electric scooters may only be used on bicycle lanes or roadways. Please remain aware of other riders and pedestrians. Only one person may operate the scooter at a time. Return the scooter to any scooter station, either to an available rack or at the end of the racks using a cable lock if the station is full.

You can reserve a scooter through the application in advance. The charging period will begin 10 minutes after you have made your reservation. The reservation will be valid for an hour if you do not cancel it.

A fully charged electric scooter can travel up to 15 kilometers with a maximum speed of 25 km/h.
