    Electric scooter-sharing service, WeMo Scooter, officially enters Kaohsiung on October 21. It first chooses areas with high demand for commuting as starting points including Zuoying and Nanzih Districts, Cianjhen Export Processing Zone and MRT Kaisyuan Station, and will then progressively expand its service to other places. The Transportation Bureau's MenGo monthly pass has formed a partnership with WeMo Scooter. 600 MenGo Points can be exchanged for the benefit of free WeMo Scooter for the first 12 minutes. The Transportation Bureau, in conjunction with shared transport operators, jointly promotes green transport, and invites the public to experience a smarter, greener and more environmentally friendly mode of transportation!

    WeMo Scooter expanded its service to outside of the Greater Taipei area for the first time on October 21 and has officially entered Kaohsiung to provide instant electric scooter rental service. It provides the first and last mile connections to Kaohsiung public transport. In particular, it collaborates with the Transportation Bureau's MenGo monthly pass which allows the public to redeem MenGo Points for free ride service. Areas with high demand for commuting such as Zuoying and Nanzih districts, Cianjhen Export Processing Zone and MRT Kaisyuan Station were chosen as starting points to provide a more convenient and environmentally friendly type of transportation for the public. The operator also introduces various promotional campaigns to encourage consumers to experience the new intelligent travel and transportation service with knock-down prices.

    The Transportation Bureau of Kaohsiung City Government stated that Kaohsiung City is committed to build a low-carbon sustainable city by actively advocating new types of public transportation services. In response to the development trend of shared transport services, the City Government has established relevant autonomous regulations and management measures for shared transport vehicles. Presently, e-bike/scooter sharing operators include Gokube which has doubled its e-bikes to 400, LavieBike which has 50 e-bikes in service, and WeMo Scooter which was launched on October 21. The addition of the new types of green energy transportation allows Kaohsiung City public transport network to be connected with the shared transport to provide more flexible and convenient transport services. It is expected to reduce the use of private vehicles which will in turn reduce air pollution emissions, and to become a new preferred transportation option for commuting and sightseeing in Kaohsiung.
