Zurich is facing a flood of scooters

Zurich is a companion to the city in the quiet Rolling on two small wheels: soon, more than 2000 electric-powered scooters should be available without fixed locations for Rent. The number of today, there are approximately 550 E-scooters of Flash, and the 80 of Bird in the Free-Floating System is expected to quadruple, therefore, within a short period of time. The safety Department with Councilwoman Karin Rykart (Green) at the top has approved in the last few days, six applications for approximately 1600 E-scooters, such as the media office of the Department on request said.

Yet is also open, such as Lime will be in Zurich in behavior. The US company had to take your 300 E - Scooter in Zurich after an accident series from the market. "We are currently investigating how we will be for this spring position, but are confident to be again very soon on the Zurich streets on the go", it says on request.

No limit

The operators have the licence now, can set up their little Companion as early as next Wednesday in the city and distribute them. The grant is from the 1. May valid. In addition to the new rental-scooters, a further approximately 400 new bicycles, which were also approved recently. A numerical upper limit for rental bicycles or scooters, it is not in Zurich, as stated by the safety Department. Those who fulfill the conditions to receive a permit. Here, the economic-liberal approach The market is to regulate the number without the interference of the policy itself.

The city Council has adopted a month ago, the new rules for the authorization and the regulation on the use of public reason adapted. Anyone offering more than 30 vehicles with two wheels, must obtain a permit. In the case of vehicles such as Velorikschas, Cargo bikes, or in vehicles with more than three wheels, it takes from 3 vehicles, a licence. The vehicles offered must be in working order, running order and a roadworthy condition. If tenants Parking inside or the tenant of a Bicycle or a scooter in violation of regulations, must remove the landlord within 24 hours from there. And the two wheels may not be exclusively around for advertising purposes in the city.

The city wants to new demand fees from the providers of the Mietgefährte. The scheme provides that an operator from the 31. The vehicle will have to pay with two wheels ten francs per vehicle and month. For larger and wider vehicles, the amount is doubled.

Rykart must fees

To check a majority of the municipal Council is now, however, does not agree. An urgent postulate of Sven Sobernheim (GLP) and Andri silver Schmidt (FDP) has transferred the Parliament nearly two weeks ago against the motion of councillor Rykart a clear, 77-to-31 vote. Rykart now has to check the fees.

The Parliament was with the two Postulants of the opinion that the fees would jeopardize the integrated public transportation more instead of support. Silver Schmidt threw Rykart, to have no sense of the impact of red tape on industry and Innovation. The cost is expected to max cover the costs of the administration and the market would have to be fair. Parked cars in the blue Zone would cover the cost of fees only to the administration.

Rykart pointed out that Zurich has not only made good experiences with providers: Suddenly, cheap green and yellow bikes would have pushed into the city and had been soon around and broken. The public space is also not free. Wool, a trader on a public sidewalk, a plaque advertising set up, he must pay for the use of public land for a fee. You could not prefer an industry.
