Bleeper raises €600,000 to expand bike fleet and launch e-scooters
The start-up is expanding its fleet in Dublin but its e-scooter plans will depend on a new transport bill being passed into law. Bleeper has raised nearly €600,000 to add more bikes to its sharing fleet and it is plotting the roll-out of e-scooters. It has been planning to launch electric bikes in its fleet for some time but has experienced delays. Bleeper is planning to add e-scooters to its fleet but that depends on a legislative change in Ireland to allow e-scooter sharing services. Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan, TD, said late last year that laws to regulate e-scooters were coming up shortly.
