In its first electric scooter sharing program that would make commuting within the city super easy, Paris announced the launch of 600 Gogoro Smartscooters as part of the Coup eScooter sharing service. Coup, a subsidiary of Bosch, first launched the scooter sharing service in Berlin with 200 Gogoro electric scooters in 2016.
Horace Luke, co-founder and CEO of Gogoro said in a press release: “Gogoro and Coup are focused on delivering new services that encourage consumer adoption of more sustainable transportation choices like the Smartscooter. The Coup e-scooter sharing model has been proven successful in Berlin and we are looking forward to introducing it in Paris this summer with the same success.”
Coup requires a Class B (for normal cars) or international driver’s license — you don’t need a motorcycle license. It costs €3 for 30 minutes of riding or €20 for a full day.
