Known primarily for its ride-hailing business, Bolt has now expanded its micromobility offering into more than 100 cities. Intelligent Transport’s Joshua Minchin sat down with Bolt’s Global Director of Rentals Products, Dmitri Pivovarov, to find out how it has achieved so much so quickly.
A new coalition has formed among some of Europe’s biggest names in micromobilty to promote the new form of urban transport across the continent.
Private-hire company Addison Lee has joined Uber and Bolt in offering discounted rides for Londoners travelling to one of the major vaccination hubs in the capital as the UK races to immunise as many vulnerable people as possible.
As the UK starts to vaccinate 300,000 people a day, Uber is stepping in to cover £15 worth of rides for those travelling to one of seven mass-vaccination centres in England.
Bolt says it has offered a helping hand to the UK government to make sure Londoners get to their vaccine appointments, with an initial £250,000 worth of rides initially pledged.
Bolt's custom-made scooters offer an up to five-year lifespan, are 100 per cent recyclable, and aim to soon be carbon negative.
Bolt is reportedly the first on-demand transportation platform in Europe to have e-bikes, scooters, and ridehailing under a single brand in one app.
The funding round, led by Naya Capital Management, aims to allow the ride-hailing firm to expand and capitalise on evolving passenger demand that has been triggered by COVID-19.
The goal of the funding is to support Bolt’s product development and research in areas where the use of technology can improve the safety, reliability and sustainability of its services.
After seeing 1.5 million passengers and recruiting 30,000 drivers since the June 2019 London launch, Bolt has unveiled a new hub for drivers in Chiswick, London, which aims to connect current and prospective drivers.
