Micromobility operator, Bolt has been awarded an e-scooter and e-bike license in Oslo, Norway.
The company has announced that it is one of three companies that have been chosen to operate over 2,500 micromobility vehicles in Oslo until March 2025.
This new license will commence on 1 April 2024 and will see Bolt return to the city, having previously offered micromobility services from 2020 to 2023.
“We are thrilled about the opportunity to return to Oslo, and proud of the trust that the city has shown in us. We are happy to resume our work together to shape sustainable mobility habits, hopefully for many years to come. At Bolt, we are committed to being a reliable companion for cities, supporting them in making urban areas more people-friendly by offering alternatives to driving a private car and tackling air and noise pollution and congestion.”
To improve its services and enhance safety, Bolt has launched a number of new features that will apply to its operations in Oslo. This includes its AI-based end-of-ride parking solution, ParkAssist+ to promote correct parking procedures.
In addition, the company has launched its reckless rider score to evaluate a rider’s behaviour and suspend those who repeatedly violate safety rules.
Bolt will also offer distance-based pricing, rather than charging per time alike to the industry standard. This is because the typical model can encourage riders to reach their destinations as quickly as possible, leading to unsafe riding behaviours.
