After the city launches in Eskilstuna, Borås and Halmstad in Sweden and Lahti and Jyväskylä in Finland this spring Voi is now further expanding in the Nordic region. We are now offering our shared e-scooter service in the cities of Solna in Sweden, Sandnes in Norway and Oulu and Vaasa in Finland.
Christina Moe Gjerde, General Manager Nordics at Voi, says: “We are proud to launch in four Nordic cities in one week after five previous Nordic launches this spring. As usual we have adjusted our service to regional city life in close dialogue with the municipalities.”
A sustainable alternative to car journeys that complements public transport for commuters
Voi provides invaluable micromobility services for people seeking a sustainable and safe transport alternative to car journeys. Our shared e-scooters, available to anyone over 18 years old, are a perfect replacement for cars in the city centres and, at the same time, serve to complement public transport for commuters.

Using technology to mitigate bad parking and intoxicated riding
Voi is collaborating closely with all of these cities to select No Parking Zones. It has also been agreed that Voi’s in-app Reaction Test be visible on specific evenings, in order to prevent drunk driving. Riders who fail the test are advised to take alternative transport modes.
Rider education through digital traffic school
Residents in the cities who have not ridden e-scooters before are advised to use Voi’s digital traffic school RideLikeVoila.com, which more than 600,000 riders in Europe have benefited from to date. Beginners can also opt to ride in Beginner’s mode on the app, which automatically lowers the lower maximum speed to 15km/h for as long as they like.
Throughout the spring, more Nordic city launches will follow. Watch this space!
