Voi Technology has announced that it will be introducing hundreds of its Voiager 3X e-scooters to the streets of Lahti in Finland, making it the fifth Finnish city to benefit from its micro-mobility services.

In 2021, the European Commission (EC) dubbed Lahti as the ‘European Green Capital of the Year’ for its many green initiatives in order to become Finland’s first carbon neutral city by 2025. These initiatives range from an app for residents to track their individual carbon footprint, to heating systems powered by recycled fuel.

“We have been keeping an eye on Lahti for a long time and discussed co-operation with the city. We are pleased to be able to bring a new carbon neutral option to the European Green Capital. We hope that we can reduce the need for private cars in Lahti and thus further improve the comfort of the city as air pollution and noise are reduced,” said Reetta Alastalo, Country Manager Finland at Voi Technology.

Lahti is a fine example of a 15-minute city philosophy, where everything that you need can be found within walking distance, cycling, public transport or via e-scooter. Thus, Voi is confident that its Voiager 3X models will serve to grow this movement in the green city.

Voi will also encourage Lahti riders to use its digital traffic school, Ride Like Voila, which has more than 600,000 riders in Europe having already benefited from it to date. The micro-mobility operator will also support responsible e-scooter parking in the city, with its ‘Report a Voi’ webpage.

In addition, Voi will be rewarding Lahti riders for using a helmet, with an app facility to do so. In Lahti, the company will operate in the city centre and also Ankkuril, Sopenkorpi, Asemantausta, Laune and Paavola.
