Estonia-based Bolt, a transportation platform known for providing ride-hailing and scooter sharing services has kicked of an e-bike pilot project in the French Capital ahead of a tender process where the city may shortlist a few approved vendors to operate within the City limits. Bolt moved ahead in a bid to expand its network of operations powered by more favourable conditions where the Council of Paris engages a new wide-ranging programme of green city initiatives since the lockdown.
The UK recently pledged £2 billion purposed to drive a new era for green mobility that includes cycling.
According to CEO Markus Villig, this step forward is part of the company’s wider vision to be an all-encompassing transport service that provides alternatives to private cars, busses and trains.
Bolt was founded in 2013 as a ride-sharing taxi app but has since diversified, today Bolt is a transportation platform providing ride-hailing, scooter and e-bike sharing and food delivery services with more than 30 million users in over 150 countries globally.
