What was a mere formality fell this week. The self-service Electric Scooter will not be back in 2020 in Montreal.

The city of Montreal has announced the end of self-service Electric Scooters. The experience launched in August 2019 will not be renewed. The cause: users' lack of respect for regulations.

Obviously the experience did not convince the mayor of Montreal.
Only 20% of the scooters were parked ” in the dedicated spaces, noted the municipality. The city denounces issues for " security ", a " disorder " and a " sometimes difficult cohabitation with pedestrians ". In short, in Montreal as elsewhere, the problem remains the same: the indiscipline of users of electric vehicles.

For the person in charge of mobility within the city " Montreal does not want to turn into the scooter police ". And Eric Alan Caldwell to point out the operators who " failed to ensure their responsibility for compliance with the regulations ". Result, after the winter break: " there will be no more ( electric ) scooters in the streets of Montreal ".
It is the failure of a model that is not realistic. To think that the user will have the will to return the vehicle to a precise place without human control, without a physical support is a utopia. This kind of service must be framed at the rental and at the return of the rental. There is a great opportunity to review this service.
Footbike will be there.
