The electric scooter companies Tier, Voi, and Ryde are suing Oslo Municipality for setting the maximum limit of e-scooters in the city at 8,000.
“This (note: the lawsuit) is not aimed at stopping regulation in general. It aims to ensure that regulation is good and effective,” Morten Askeland in Tier told E24.
The e-scooter companies are also asking for a so-called temporary injunction. If the Oslo District Court upholds it, parts of Oslo’s new regulations for electric scooters will be put on hold until further notice.
Fighting the limit
Among big European cities, Oslo has had the most electric scooters per resident, and the Municipality wanted to do something about the number of e-scooters.
Therefore, new rules are set to come into force in September, including a maximum limit of 8,000 scooters, as well as specific geographical regulations.
The three companies will now try to remove the maximum limit by suing the Municipality in court.
