Micro-mobility post coronavirus is a hot topic since travelling safely while maintaining social distancing is the new norm. Just last month, the Irish dockless e-scooter startup Zipp Mobility got the green flag for setting up UK trials and now, the company has secured €500,000 investment as it ramps up plans to operate several shared e-scooter trials in the UK.
