    Scooters self-service: Paris will keep only three actors and 15 000 machines


    Scooters self-service: Paris will keep only three actors and 15 000 machines

    A call for tenders has been launched by the Paris City Council which intends to authorize only three players on the capital. The number of free-floating scooters will be limited to 15,000 against 40,000 currently. The decision will be taken in the coming weeks.


    The Paris City Council decides (finally) to regulate the operation of the various electric scooter services. The decision was made to consolidate the sector around three actors - against a dozen currently. A call for tenders is expected in October. Once selected, they will be able to deploy up to 5,000 scooters each, for a total of 15,000 self-service vehicles. For the comparison, at the height of the activity nearly 40 000 personal means of transport were proposed in the capital - a real anarchy. The authorization of occupation of the public space will be valid for a duration of 2 years.

    Regulate the sector

    In recent months, the vice has gradually tightened around services in "free-floating". The decision was made to ban traffic on the sidewalks: "we can not leave machines sometimes traveling at 20 or 30 km / h, putting pedestrians on the sidewalks at risk. These machines will be able to circulate on the tracks or on the cycle lanes or in the zones with 30 km / h ". In case of non-compliance, the user risks a fine of 90 euros may be increased to 135 euros if the payment is not made within 15 days.

    The town hall is also part of the crusade against parking scooters with a fine of 35 euros when it is considered embarrassing. Thus, since July 30, it is forbidden to leave a scooter on a sidewalk, a pedestrian area or on the roadway. Specific areas are being studied to reduce inconvenience.

    In addition, the National Assembly has also adopted the mobilities bill, which is supposed to provide a legal framework for these new modes of transport.
