Bolt closed its largest ever round of funding. This €150m investment will help the company enhance the safety and quality of products and services.
The investment was led by D1 Capital Partners, and also included Darsana Capital Partners.
These new safety features include an SOS button, designed to let users contact emergency services quickly if needed and a ”Share Ride Info” button, allowing riders to inform friends and family of their location and expected time of arrival.
Earlier this month, Bolt unveiled its 4th generation scooter, developed by 100% in-house.
This scooter is now the safest scooter model on the market, thanks to unique sensors that detect unsafe riding patterns.
It has also been optimised to provide extra stability and safer manoeuvring.
