Yego will offer 50 additional self-service electric scooters in 21 municipalities in the Bordeaux metropolitan area. This number is in addition to the 200 already offered by the service provider in mainland France. This new location follows the call for expressions of interest (AMI) launched in April by the metropolis. With the aim: to develop “a new framework for “free-floating” services on its territory”.
This AMI aimed in particular at “more control, commitments on the part of operators, more harmonious territorial development, an expanded global offer, controlled parking and limited speeds”. Following the selection of the various service providers, i.e. six out of the eleven present so far, the metropolis thus provides for a “control and monitoring platform to verify compliance with the commitments of users and operators”.
With AMI de Bordeaux, Yego electric scooters…
To meet the expectations of this AMI, Yego “will use its technology to guarantee a good distribution” of its electric scooters in the metropolis of Bordeaux. With the objective of remaining “in accordance with the rules of deployment established by the community”. The service provider also announces its intention to check all the photos of the scooters taken by users at the end of the trip to certify that they are properly parked. Yego also indicates that it will deploy “raising awareness or even penalizing users in the event of poor parking”. Finally, the service provider plans to communicate data on its fleet in real time to metropolitan France.
… but also Bird, Pony, Dott, Tier and E-Dog
At the end of the call for expression of interest, Yego is therefore one of a handful of service providers selected. Including Bird, which will circulate 750 VAE, or Pony, for 550 VAE and 200 mechanical bicycles, as well as Dott and Tier for 750 electric scooters each, and finally E-Dog for 250 electric scooters. To cope with this influx of self-service vehicles, the metropolis is announcing the multiplication of parking spaces. Or 150 more in Bordeaux and 250 in the cities of the metropolis.
