Voi Technology has announced that it has further expanded its operations in the Nordic region, with the launch of its shared e-scooter service in the cities of Borås and Halmstad in Sweden and Jyväskylä in Finland.
Voi provides reliable micro-mobility services for people seeking a sustainable and safe transport alternative to short car journeys. Its shared e-scooters, available to anyone over 18 years old, are a perfect replacement for cars in the city centres and, at the same time, serve to complement public transport for commuters.
Christina Moe Gjerde, General Manager Nordics at Voi, said: “We look forward to providing our green transport alternative in these four Nordic cities. In close dialogue with the municipalities, we have adjusted our service to regional city life. We will continue on that track to develop the right solutions for each city. Our shared e-scooters can be used in combination with public transport in order to facilitate modal shift in the cities.”
The micro-mobility company is collaborating closely with all of these cities to select popular pedestrian streets that will become Voi’s designated Slow Speed Zones and No Parking Zones. It has also been agreed that Voi’s in-app Reaction Test be visible on specific evenings, in order to prevent drunk driving. Riders who fail the test are advised to take alternative transport modes.
Residents in the cities who have not ridden e-scooters before are advised to use Voi’s digital traffic school RideLikeVoila.com, which has benefitted more than 600,000 riders in Europe to date. Beginners can also opt to ride in Beginner’s Mode on the app, which automatically lowers the lower maximum speed to 15km/h for as long as they like.
