Yes, the Dutch are still flying, or at least that’s the first thing to come in mind when thinking about Hopper, the first electric scooter taxi service in Amsterdam, Holland. The Hopper scooters can be flagged in the street, called via phone, website and a dedicated smartphone/tablet app will soon be ready. So if you’re in central Amsterdam and need a quick ride from A to B, hop on a Hopper scooter and there you go!
There are so many things we simply love about this idea, and the electric bikes are only the top layer of the cake. Hopper scooters are limited to 25 km/h (15.5 mph) and the Dutch law does not require wearing a helmet up to this speed. This means you simply get on the bike and scuttle off. No helmets to carry around and so much convenience.

Then comes the small luggage compartment on each machine. You can load your small shopping bag in the trunk and that’s all, you’re free to enjoy the ride. Finally it the price: €2,5 ($3,2) for any route, as long as it’s in central Amsterdam. You can pay with cash or credit card and you just know nobody will try to scam you. Way to go, Amsterdam, way to go!
