Hola a todos!

I thought I would give you all an update about a new initiative that has arrived in Montevideo.

An electric scooter service that charges you per minute of usage is now available in Montevideo. In order to use the scooters one needs to download the app Grin from the App store. The first trip you take is free of charge and any trip afterwards will cost you 4 pesos a minute. The company is of Mexican origin and began its operations in the middle east. It has expanded to cover areas such cities as Santiago, Bogota and Rio de Janeiro. The success of this initiative has so far primarily been in South America.

So how does it work? After downloading the app you will be able to see a map of your city displaying the location of all the available scooters closes to you. From there you walk towards one of the scooters and use your phone to unlock the scooter. For this you only need to scan the barcode of the scooter using your camera or enter the code on the scooter into the grin application. Once done you can leave the scooter in the whatever area or return it to one of the Grin stations. Grin stations are places agreed by Grin and local businesses where they can store and charge up Grin’s scooters. There are numerous Grin stations dotted around the city. The scooters are designed for short trips, on average two kilometers.

Currently the area of ​​operations extends approximately from Ciudad Vieja to Parque Rodó. Human interaction is not necessary and, in any case, the devices have a support leg that so they can stand by themselves. Their top speed is 25km/h which is fast enough to get around quickly and enjoy the ride at the same time. Unfortunately on my journey the scooter ran out of battery but I did enjoy it a lot whilst it lasted.

Overall it is a very useful initiative which the people of Montevideo have enthusiastically welcomed!
