Several electric scooter players in Oslo have been accused of having too many electric scooters. After hearing out the companies, Oslo Municipality decided they would be allowed to keep the permits.
Oslo Municipality informed Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) that it is satisfied with the answers from the e-scooter companies.
The companies had until last Sunday to prove that they followed the new rules, which set a maximum of 667 electric scooters in operation per company.
At the end of October, the newspaper Aftenposten wrote that, after monitoring the number of electric scooters, the Urban Environment Agency concluded that several companies had more scooters in operation than they were allowed to have.
Therefore, they sent out a letter to Ryde, Sharebike, Bydue, Tier, and Voi, asking the e-scooter companies to explain themselves.
