There’s a new way to get around Malta that’s environmentally friendly, looks super cool, and at 20c per minute, it is the cheapest electric motorbike sharing option on the island and will help you beat the traffic. Electric motorbikes and scooters are vehicles that use power stored in a rechargeable battery, eliminating the use of fuel.

And you can now rent your own eMoto to travel around the island thanks to IoScoot.

Currently operating between St Julian’s and Valletta, IoScoot is a new eMoto renting and sharing platform

The eMotos are fully electric and are equipped with a 1.8kW motor that provides a maximum speed of 45km/h – perfectly suitable for Malta. They are designed for European countries, carry up to two people and can be driven on any road in Malta and Gozo.

To use the IoScoot service, users just need to follow these easy steps – all managed through the Meep App:

  1. Download the Meep App

    • Sign up on Meep for free

    • Select My Meep from the menu

    • Go to Transport Providers

    • Select IoScoot and register

    • They will verify your driver’s licence in 24 hours

  2. Unlock and drive

    • Launch your Meep App​

    • Activate IoScoot in three simple steps

    • Find your closest moto

    • Follow the instructions to unlock and drive safely

  3. Park and return

    • Please follow street parking rules​

    • Place the helmet back inside the top case

    • Don’t forget to finish your rental session in Meep

The IoScoot fleet currently consists of 70 bikes

And they can be picked up and dropped off anywhere within the areas in which the service is available. It currently operates in the following localities: Valletta, Msida, Gzira, Sliema and St. Julian’s. These areas, which are visible to the user on the app, are highlighted in the map below.

 

All IoScoot eMotos come with two safety helmets locked in a compartment on the bike

All riders will be required to be in possession of a driving licence enabling them to ride mopeds. This includes those drivers that have undergone the 10-hour training scheme without the need to have the full motorcycle licence.

The motorbikes do not require a charging infrastructure, because they use a battery system that can be swapped and charged remotely. This makes the system very easy to use, allowing the bikes to be parked in any normal parking space.

Plus, no road space is taken up by charging stations.
