Chinese technology start-up Onemile has launched its electric scooter rental service which comes with a seating pad to help improve rider safety.
The company’s Halo City scooters are available in Hawaii, Paris, London and Berlin.
Onemile aims to offer its service at mid and long-term rental and says it will provide an integrated parking location and management system.
It is not the only company looking to find new ways to improve safety for riders. In the US, Bird rolled out an app feature which allows users to report poorly parked or damaged electric scooters.
