🛴 Ireland hits the ground on two wheels

Following Ireland’s lift on their electric scooter ban last week, it seems that shared scooters have already hit the nation’s streets.

In a recent announcement, Bolt scooters have already landed, yet what cities they plan to operate in are currently unknown, as well as whether these scooters are actually available to rent. The scooters are compliant with the Irish Department of Transport’s regulations, which include a 20km/h speed limit being set at factory.

🚗 Car sharing’s biggest development yet…

Last Thursday, Fluctuo held a webinar on car sharing, with some of the industry’s leading figures. With the help of IDnow, Brussels Mobility and wigo carsharing, the talk covered the reasons behind car sharing’s recent boom, how to deal with the issue of vandalism, what we can hope to see from the mode in the near future and much more.

Thank you to everyone who came along, especially those who participated in a very lively audience discussion. Catch the whole talk here.
