Electric scooter operator Bolt expects another year of growing numbers of electric scooters in Oslo, newspaper E24 reports. Bolt also fears that there will be scooter-related chaos in the city.
According to the analysis company Fluctuo, there is now about one electric scooter per every fifty citizens in Oslo, which is the highest number in Europe, when divided by the number of inhabitants, according to the newspaper.
And there may be even more electric scooters this summer.
“We fear that there may be 20,000 to 25,000 electric scooters this year. It will be chaos,” David Mothander at Bolt told the newspaper.
He fears that this will create so much clutter that the industry risks both politicians and people turning against it.
The operators Tier and Voi share Mothander’s fears.
The City Council is introducing daily prices for the placement of vehicles. The zones closest to the city center will then have the highest prices, and it will thus be expensive for the operators to have too many scooters there.
