Introducing the newest member of the Bolt family of four and two-wheeled vehicles. Starting from today, all Parisian urban commuters will have the opportunity to get from A to B on a Bolt electric bike!
Over the last few years, the Council of Paris has been developing a wide-ranging programme of green initiatives. A major element of which has been the focus on developing a more modern urban transportation system, introducing cycle paths at all major hotspots around the city.
This highly innovative, big-picture plan working toward a greener future for all Parisians is inspiring and made the selection of Paris as the launch-city of our brand new product — the Bolt e-bike — an absolute no-brainer.
We’re proud to now be an even bigger part of Paris’ green revolution, adding the electric bike option to our already 100% carbon-neutral selection of ride-hailing vehicles.
Looking for the specifics? Here are the all-important specs:
As mentioned, all of Bolt’s electric bikes are limited to a speed of 25 km/h. We also recommend that you bring and wear a helmet for your own safety.
If you don’t feel 100% confident on an e-bike yet, you can start off with Beginner Mode, part of our Safety Toolkit, designed to help you learn to ride safely. Before hopping on the bike, please pay attention to the recommendations in the app.
As you know, Bolt’s mission is to make urban transportation fast, affordable and easy to use for everyone.
To rent a Bolt e-bike, you’ll need the Bolt app and a payment card tied to your account to pay.
Follow these steps to start riding a Bolt electric bike:
To celebrate the launch of Bolt’s new micro-mobility service in Paris, all Bolt e-bikes can be unlocked for FREE until the 15th of July! Adding to that, the current per-minute rental price is the lowest on the market at just 0.10 EUR/minute during the launch campaign.
This is a world premiere, if you like! So, right now, you can only rent a Bolt electric bike in Paris, but more cities will be added to that list soon. Stay tuned for updates!
So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to ride! Download the app and get going.
