The Metropolitan Municipality, which announced for the application of companies, will allow the use of a total of 25 thousand 9 "scooters" in all 594 districts.

The new generation electric scooter, which is frequently used in European countries and whose use is increasing day by day due to the reduction of carbon emissions with the use of motor vehicles, is also becoming widespread in Başkent.

Electric scooters, which attract attention with their comfortable use and have environmental features, can only be used on bicycles and vehicle roads, and their use on the pavement will be prohibited. At the end of the journey, the user will be required to issue an invoice stating the usage period, usage amount, time and date. Companies will inform users in adverse weather conditions, and if necessary, they will close the scooter, which is an alternative means of transportation.
