Forget bike sharing!
Try an e-scooter instead to get around.
First came bike sharing, now there is e-scooter sharing! Singapore-based company, PopScoot is introducing a new electric scooter co-sharing platform, which will initially see pilot docks deployed at ManuLife Centre, Republic Plaza, Tiong Bahru Plaza and City Square Mall.
To release the e-scooter, the platform uses a Bluetooth app-based unlocking system through mobile phones. There is an in-app GPS which provides the ability to locate available scooters around the island and track the travelling route of users. As a location-based mobile solution, it is also able to turn docking locations into data hotspots in the future.
PopScoot is capable of deploying both a dockless system supported by a remote immobilisation capability; and a self-charging docked system that is modular, expandable and drill-less.
So, next time if you are looking for a bike, consider an e-scooter instead. Just don’t forget e-scooters are not allowed on roads, only on footpaths and be mindful of pedestrians.
