GO Sharing launches 500 e-scooters in Brussels
After conquering Antwerp, Dutch GO Sharing is setting foot on Brussels’ territory. The company will launch 500 electric scooters in the Belgian capital, 250 this week, and 250 next week. GO Sharing is the largest shared e-moped network in the Benelux, and the third provider in Brussels, after Felyx and Poppy.
With the arrival of GO Sharing, the number of shared e-mopeds available in Brussels will double. Volume and covering for Brussels’ residents and visitors will expand significantly. The scale-up’s mission is to make mobility more sustainable worldwide, by converting vehicle ownership into use when needed.
‘Green, smart, and cheap’
According to the company, the formula is “easy and cheap, green, and smart”. GO Sharing’s motto is: “a green planet with mobility owned by everyone, shared by everyone”. Raymon Pauwels, CEO of GO Sharing: “We want to bring about the mentality shift from personal ownership to shared use, worldwide.”
The Go Sharing mopeds will be available in the surroundings of the capital, in parts of Elsene and Saint-Gillis, among others, and in particular hotspots, where demand is high.
No registration fee
The shared scooters are available 24/7, and users only have to download the GO Sharing app to find, unlock, and pay for the vehicle. There is no registration fee and users pay with a bank or credit card. Only people with a valid driver’s license are allowed to use the scooters.
The GO Sharing mopeds have a 70 km range and can reach speeds of up to 45 km/hour. They come with two helmets and hairnets. Users pay 29 cents per minute, battery switch, maintenance, and insurance included.
Today, GO Sharing deploys over 10 000 shared electric vehicles in over 35 cities. Among them are Antwerp, Vienna, Düsseldorf, Saarbrücken, Cologne, and Istanbul. Together, they ensure less CO2 emissions, less traffic congestion, and a reduced need for parking spaces in cities.
