First sign : Cityscoot. The advantage of this brand is the offer of scooters in Paris, namely 4 000. But that’s not all because Cityscoot is also available in Nice, Bordeaux and even Barcelona and Milan.

Its price is, to date, 0,39 euro per minute but savings are possible thanks to to different packages.
