Voi Technology has announced that its shared e-scooters have re-launched in Frederiksberg from May 2022, making it the sixth municipality where Voi is present in Denmark. The micro-mobility operator’s e-scooters were present on the streets of the Danish city in 2019 and 2020, where it became a very popular mode of transport.
At the beginning of 2022, Frederiksberg awarded Voi, along with three other operators, the licence to operate e-scooters in the city. All operators are required to maintain high standards of parking and safety; thus Voi Technology has ensured that residents and riders can enjoy its e-scooters without having to worry about them being parked incorrectly.
Riders in Frederiksberg will be able to end their journey by parking in one of the 75 allocated parking spaces that have been agreed with the city. In the most crowded places in the region, parking spots are equipped with racks installed by the city, making parking more orderly in those areas. In less congested areas, parking zones will be marked with paint and signage.
Erik Christian Hasselbalch, Voi Technology Country Manager in Denmark, said: “With Voi e-scooters, the citizens of Frederiksberg get access to a green and flexible alternative to daily transport. The e-scooters are a convenient and accessible way to move from A to B, and the people of Frederiksberg thus have more incentives to use e-scooters instead of cars to and from public transport.”
In order to prevent drunk driving, on Fridays and Saturdays between 22:00 and 00:00, Voi’s in-app Reaction Test is activated. Riders who fail the test are advised to take alternative transport modes. Furthermore, Voi’s e-scooters are unavailable for rides during the late hours on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.
Residents in Frederiksberg who have not ridden e-scooters before are advised to use Voi Technology’s digital traffic school RideLikeVoila.com, which has already benefitted more than 600,000 riders in Europe and the UK. Beginners can also opt to ride in Beginner’s mode on the app, which automatically lowers the lower maximum speed to 15km/h.
