Fukuoka City Launches Electric Scooter Sharing Service

In Fukuoka City, a new electric scooter sharing service began on the 27th, following last year’s July enforcement of the revised Road Traffic Law which allows individuals over 16 to ride electric scooters without a driving license, given the scooters meet certain criteria such as maximum speed and size. This initiative, the first of its kind in Fukuoka City since the law’s revision, aims to offer an alternative mode of transportation to complement existing public transport systems, addressing issues like driver shortages. To access the service, users need to register on a dedicated app with a valid ID and pass a quiz on traffic rules. The service, provided by Luup, features around 350 ports across the city at commercial facilities and condominiums, emphasizing the importance of adhering to traffic regulations for safe use.
