Stockholm by scooter

You wonder how to find your first scooter at the beginning of your stay. As soon as you register, you are geolocated and the application shows you the spots closest to your position to pick up your scooter. On your route, you are tracked and you are offered secure stopping points. Then, at the end of your day, you will have access to preferred parking lots, to earn points and therefore discounts on your next trips.

At the price level, there are monthly subscriptions for long stays, 24-hour passes or minute rates for occasional riders. You can select your price choice directly on the application and pay online.

Are you new to riding? No problem, first test your knowledge at the Voi driving school. Once you have mastered the theory, get started with the "beginner" mode.

Get around Stockholm on an electric scooter

Stockholm's network of cycle paths is very impressive. It represents 750 km of tracks that allow you to criss-cross the entire city. Most of them have been installed outside the roads reserved for motor vehicles, to avoid cohabitation between motorists and cyclists. This considerably reduces incivility and the risk of accidents. You will therefore only come across very few cars. Of course, it may happen that certain accesses meet, but these intersections or these joint spaces are very well signposted and the junction is made with maximum safety. Here are the main routes accessible to electric scooters:

  • For shopping, you can easily stroll around on a scooter in the districts of Norrmalm City, Östermalm and Vasastan.
  • You can also ride along the harbor of Strandvägen on a tree-lined cycle path, to take a lunch break in one of the restaurants by the water.
  • Then by extending the route towards the east of the city, you will reach the natural spaces: the Nobelparken Park, the Rosendals Garden or the Djurgården Park.
  • If you prefer the charm of the old town, you will also find cycle routes in Gamla Stan.
  • On the other side of the city, to the west, there is Rålambshov Park in Kungsholmen and its leisure and sports area.
