In terms of transport sharing, car and bike sharing schemes are the ones that most often come to mind. Yet the electric scooter also has a contribution to make; both to sustainable mobility and as part of a diverse transport mix.

Anne Hidalgo, the Mayor of Paris, certainly thinks so. Just over a year ago, she introduced the CityScoot electric scooter sharing scheme to Paris. In the past year, its popularity has increased by 500%, and there is now a network of over 1,000 scooters in the city.
