Operating fleets of light vehicles in 200+ cities has given us a unique understanding of the importance of strong local regulations. Micromobilty in cities can be handled in a couple of different ways.
Provides cities with extra revenue — for infrastructure improvements or other transportation initiatives.
Prevents operators from placing too many vehicles on the street, minimising costs.
Encourages operators to take measures that result in maximum vehicle usage.
Frees up public space by reducing idle electric scooters and bikes.
Operators must submit a file showing their operational plans and compliance with all local regulations.
Require operators to regularly share data so the municipality can monitor regulatory compliance.
Introduce utilisation targets to manage fleet size, and encourage regular use of the service.
Give a city more power to enforce local rules.
E-scooter use is transforming urban environments by reducing CO2 emissions, congestion, and pollution.
As the largest European scooter operator, we’re focused on delivering safe and sustainable micromobility operations.
Scooters complement public transport and help riders go about their daily tasks in a more sustainable way.
In many major European cities more than 30% of Bolt scooter trips begin and end within 100 metres of a public transport stop.
Innovative safety features, like our patented tandem riding prevention system, and a cognitive reaction test help to prevent riding under the influence of alcohol or other substances and raise awareness of its dangers.
We encourage responsible usage of e-vehicles to ensure the safety of riders and the wider public. Our Safety Toolkit allows riders to use a Beginner Mode, learn about local rules, and read safety instructions and tips.
We educate our users to park responsibly and encourage them to report bad examples they see on the streets. Additionally, our AI technology detects parking violations and shows riders how to park their scooters safely.
Our Environmental Policy is part of Bolt’s on-going commitment to reduce the environmental footprint of our products.
Sustainable practices power our processes. Using electric vehicles for internal operations, and renewable energy in our warehouses and offices are just two examples. We’re committed to bringing green transport options to cities and offsetting our CO2 emissions.
We’re proud to be ISO 14001:2015 certified. We’re committed to enhancing our environmental management system, putting in place effective procedures that minimise our environmental impact.
We actively work to reduce the number of short car trips in cities by encouraging the use of greener methods. We also incentivise users to opt for these modes through in-app messages and promotions, resulting in a up to 200% rise in e-scooter use.
