Magomed Kolgaev, Head of Sharing Projects at the Moscow Department of Transport:
"In our opinion, the main goal of kicksharing development is to solve transport problems. Muscovites actively use electric scooters, especially when commuting from their homess to various transport hubs. This year we introduced a new requirement for e-scooter rental services: no more than 30% of the total scooters should be inside the Garden Ring, no more than 30% between the Garden Ring and the Third Transport Ring, and 40% outside the Third Transport Ring [referring to the ring roads surrounding the centre of Moscow]. This decision has had a positive effect, electric scooters have appeared in residential areas, which is where they are needed most".
