Electric scooter in Buenos Aires: the sad history

Currently, there are no electric scooters or “monopatines” in Spanish available in Buenos Aires. All the companies left Argentina and the electric scooters disappeared from the street.  We said goodbye to Lime, MOVO, Grin, and Glovo Go.

Cost for the electric scooter: Grin, Glovo Go and MOVO

Grin, MOVO, Glovo GO, and Lime were system providers. All had the same price for unlocking the scooter and a ride per minute.

For unlocking the scooter in Buenos Aires was the cost $0,35 USD. Afterward, you paid $0,18 USD per minute that you use the electric scooter. For example, a 10-minute ride will cost you $2,15 USD or €1,91. Was a great deal.
