Electric scooter will be available on rent for Rs 20 in Mumbai, BEST starts new service


The Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST) has reportedly started public trials of electric scooters at major bus stops in Mumbai. This service will be useful for the passengers to visit the local market or to reach nearby places easily and in less money. These e-scooter stations are also being set up in commercial and residential areas. Transport Corporation says that the purpose of starting this service is to find an end-to-end integrated solution for the people of Mumbai.

Through a press release, BEST has claimed that it is the first bus transport operator in India to offer such an integrated last mile connectivity service. The project has been launched in partnership with Vogo. For those who don’t know, Vogo is one of the popular shared mobility companies in India.

Talking about the fare, BEST says that the base fare for these electric scooters is Rs 20. After this, the user will have to pay a charge of Rs 3 per kilometer and Rs 1.50 per minute. To use the scooter, a special app has to be used. After payment, the scooter can be unlocked and driven.

The speed limit of these electric scooters is 25 kilometers per hour. This makes them safe to drive in congested areas in the city. The low speed means that the rider does not need to have a driving license to drive them, so that people of all ages can drive them.
