Project manager for the electric scooter pilot in Bergen, Lars Ove Kvalbein, in Bergen municipality says Bergens Tidende that there are about 8,500 electric scooters in Bergen.
According to the newspaper, this means that the western village has around 309 electric scooters per 10,000 inhabitants.
Cities like Paris, Berlin and Rome all had under 50 by comparison during a count this spring. Oslo previously had 340 electric scooters per 100,000 inhabitants, but is now around 125.
There are no plans for changes in Bergen yet. But the urban environment agency has made a draft of a new regulation that will replace the pilot project. Kvalbein estimates to BT that the regulations can be adopted at the beginning of 2022 by the city council at the earliest.
