One month after the first company started renting electric scooters in Bulgaria’s capital Sofia, the world’s second largest company offering this service comes in this country. Dozens of scooters for rent can be seen downtown Sofia now. Sofia Municipality provided special parking spaces for them. Despite the restrictive measures of the Traffic Police, which banned the use of electric scooters on the Bulgarian roads, because they are not registered as motor vehicles, several other foreign companies want to offer this service in Sofia. The idea of the companies renting electric scooters is to make them an element of the urban transport and motivate people to leave their cars at home. In transport models this is called “The first and last mile”-from home or the job to the urban transport and back. More parking spaces are yet to be built in the suburbs of Sofia where there is more free space. The new electrical scooters are expected to become a convenient means of transportation of the residents of Sofia.
