Especially in European cities where the streets tend to be narrower, scooters are a common method of transportation, which is why Gogoro scooters are looking to expand to Berlin. But rather than simply opening up sales in the German city, the Gogoro scooters will be released through a rental-based vehicle-sharing system similar to companies like Car2Go and Zipcar.

All that Gogoro's scooter-sharing program requires for Berliners to participate is for users to be over 21 and have a valid driver's license. After that, potential scooter-riders just download the app, find the nearest scooter on an interactive map and select it. The scooters come with helmets in the seat compartment (which unlocks automatically through the app,) letting users ride away as soon as they get to their Gogoro scooter.
