Recently, I visited Paris and while walking down the sidewalks, all I could see was tourists and locals zipping all the way on the electric scooters everywhere in the city. The most common ones were Lime electric scooter and also Bird, and both the startups are from the U.S. These electric scooters can be unlocked via smartphones, and are quite safe and a comfortable mode of transportation in this European city.
One can say, there’s a new wave of scooter sharing startups is emerging which has already captured the US market and now it’s catching up with the European countries. Best part! They’re getting millions of investment as well. The latest one to join the bandwagon is ‘Bolt’ from Txfy (a smart short form of Taxify).
