The Viennese e-scooter market is thinning: on Wednesday, the provider Hive confirmed that it would withdraw from Vienna. The company is a joint venture between Daimler and BMW, which also work together in the car sharing sector.

“We can confirm that the scooter brand hive is withdrawing from Vienna for the time being,” it said in a statement. The company confirmed a corresponding report in the daily newspaper “Today” (Wednesday edition).

“Hive is currently strategically focusing on cities where local regulation limits the number of providers and scooters. From our point of view, this is an approach that makes micromobility more attractive for cities as well as for users and providers, ”explained.

Restrictions could also apply in Vienna

The cities of Porto and Paris were named as current examples of such regulation. “If the regulation changes accordingly in Vienna, Vienna may also become an attractive market for hive again,” was emphasized. According to its own information, Hive is available in a total of more than ten European cities and just started its service in Turin a few weeks ago.

For the time being, there is no limit to the number of scooter companies in Vienna. Only the number of e-scooters will be limited from April this year – to 500 per zone, with the three zone areas now also being newly set up. From 2021, however, a concession is also planned, which should be accompanied by a restriction of the number of providers.
