The maximum number of 8,000 bicycles is generating dissatisfaction among Oslo residents.
The local authorities have received multiple complaints about the new electric scooter rules, the newspaper Avisa Oslo (AO) writes.
One of the complainants writes, among other things, that he previously used an electric scooter daily but now hardly finds any available e-scooters.
“Where I live, the bus only runs every 30 minutes. So the alternative becomes a car. I would rather think about the environment and drive an e-scooter,” the person wrote, according to AO.
Furthermore, 87 complaints are marked “100,000 daily trips require better regulation”, which is a campaign started by the electric scooter companies Voi, Ryde, and Tier in connection with the new regulations.
In an email to AO, the Urban Environment Agency wrote that they appreciate all types of input from the public.
“A new scheme to regulate the rental of electric scooters in Oslo was introduced almost four weeks ago, and we have naturally received input related to this,” the agency wrote.
It also stated that the Urban Environment Agency would soon start making proposals for new regulations that will enter into force from April 1 next year.
