Bolt has been awarded a comprehensive license for the use of its micromobility vehicles in Milan.
One of three successful companies to receive the award; Bolt has been permitted to operate scooters, e-bikes and cargo bikes within the city through to 2026.
The license will see the extension of the availability of more than 2000 Bolt scooters in Milan, with 2000 e-bikes and 15 cargo bikes set to be added to the operator’s local fleet.
“We are proud of the trust that the city of Milan has shown in Bolt, and we are looking forward to continuing our work together to shape sustainable mobility habits in the years to come.
“At Bolt, we’re committed to being a reliable partner for cities, supporting them in making urban areas more people-friendly by offering alternatives to driving a private car, and thus tackling air and noise pollution and congestion.”
Bolt has maintained a strong presence in the economic capital since 2022, and has since launched a slew of safety systems to uphold standards during the use of its vehicles, including a cognitive reaction test to address drunk riding, a tandem riding prevention system, and ambient sound to notify pedestrians of its presence on approach.
Further systems set to be implemented include the new ParkAssit+, which will ensure fleet vehicles are left parked in the correct position, as well as detect when a scooter is likely to fall and alert the rider.
