Scooter pilot in Vuosaari in summer 2019 - have your say on the location of stations

Uutta Helsinkiä

Helsinki Region Transport HSL and Samocat Sharing Oy will conduct a trial of shared kick scooters in Vuosaari in summer 2019. Users register for the service on an app, which is also used for releasing a scooter from a scooter station. The fee is charged to the user’s payment card. Both regular scooters and electric scooters will be tested in the pilot. The scooters are foldable and can be taken on public transport, including buses, if need be.

There will be approximately 30 stations around Vuosaari. You can now have your say on the location of the stations. Mark 1-30 locations on the map, which you consider suitable for a scooter station. Please respond by 17 December.

HSL’s IdeaLab competition held this summer sought for new mobility solutions that would complement HSL’s services. Two services, scooters and on demand services, were selected for piloting. The functioning, development needs and options for continuing the two services will be studied and evaluated during and after the pilots.
