Motorcycleharing is one of the most sustainable alternatives to public transport, without having to have a private vehicle, both to travel from your university accommodation to your faculty, and to move to any other point in the city causing 0% transmissions.
In Barcelona there are four companies that offer electric motorcycles to citizens in exchange for a cost per minute.
These companies are Yego, Ecooltra, Muving and Scoot, and they all have the same operation:
Unlock it with your mobile and drive . All bikes have a hood that opens automatically with two helmets and head protectors. When you are next to the motorcycle, follow the instructions that you will see on the screen of your mobile to release it and also the helmet compartment. Then drive to your destination.
When you arrive at your destination, look for a suitable place to park the motorcycle and make the payment through the mobile account indicated at the time of registration.
These four companies add a total of about 4,000 motorcycles. We present each one of them:
Yego's electric motorcycles have a Vespa appearance and are light green in color. At the design level, our favorites. At the price level, the cost per minute is about 22 cents.
If you decide to go for the weekend with your roommates to Valencia, you should know that you also have service there.
If by design we liked Yego, due to the availability of motorcycles, we chose Ecooltra, which has the largest fleet of electric motorcycles, with more than 2,500 motorcycles in Barcelona.
The app is one of the most complete and the cost per minute is around 25 euro cents per minute.
The most powerful motorcycles are those of Muving, which reach 70 km per hour. You will recognize them by their yellow color. Its cost per minute, like its cooltra competition, is around 25 cents per minute.
The Scoot company was created in San Francisco in 2012 and they produce their bikes locally in Molins de Rei, a town near Barcelona. In addition to motorcycles, it also offers shared bicycles. You can book any of the two transport systems with a single application.
The price per minute of these black and red motorcycles is about 0.28 euros and they have a flora of about 500 motorcycles
