Hopper scooter taxis offer cheap ride through Amsterdam

Those in need of a quick ride within Amsterdam Centrum and Zuid now have the option of traveling by scooter, because Hopper just introduced a fleet of 100 electric scooter taxis.

A Hopper ride through the centre of Amsterdam costs just 2,50 euros and is payable via cash, PIN pass, or with a Hopper card. The scooters are in service from 8am till 8pm. You can flag one down on the street or order one by calling 0900-8890 or placing an order via their website, and they will soon offer a smartphone app.

Hopper hopes its green and eco-friendly scooters will compete with the existing public transportation options in Amsterdam, and would like to expand to Rotterdam, The Hague, and Utrecht within the next six months. Eventually the scooters will also be available in another 34 medium-sized municipalities.
