Registration & app usage

How do I change my personal information?
After signing up, click on your name. Here you can see your personal details and you can change them. The payment details can be found under the tab “Wallet”. If you need help, let us know via info@go-sharing.at.
The e-scooter can be started and stopped through our app. That is why our e-scooters have an extra security system, a start and stop system. If you see ‘Ready’ appearing in the dashboard, you can just drive away as usual. Do you not see this in the display? Then the start and stop system is switched on and the e-scooter will not start. Click on the button at the bottom, right next to the emergency lights button on your right hand and the e-scooter can be started. Are you still unable to start the e-scooter? Please contact our costumer support via support@go-sharing.at.
All available e-scooters can be found on the map in the GO Sharing app and of course you choose the nearest e-scooter. Click on the green button ‘Reserve’ and you will then have 15 free minutes to walk to the scooter.
You have located the e-scooter and if you have reserved it, you can simply click on ‘Start’ in the app to start the scooter. If you are standing next to the scooter without making a reservation, you can just scan the QR code on the scooter.
When you open the app, click on the profile icon on the right and register your phone number. Pay attention! Your number is verified with a code, so use the phone number that corresponds to the phone on which you installed the app. Then enter your details:  
  1. Click on the profile icon on the right, fill in your personal details and click on ‘save’
  2. Then follow the steps to submit your driving license for verification
  3. After uploading, your driving license will be verified and you will receive an SMS within a few minutes
  4. You can now add your payment method. You can drive per minute with your CreditCard and if you want to buy a package, you can also pay via Apple Pay, PayPal & immediate credit transfer
  5. Do you want to start a ride? Find an e-scooter near you on the map
  6. Click on the e-scooter icon and press ‘Reserve’
  7. Walk during the 15 free minutes to your e-scooter. When you are at the e-scooter, click on ‘Start’ in the app
  8. Drive wherever you want to go to. Have fun!

During your ride

How far can I go with a full battery?
The battery can reach more than 70 kilometers! But pay attention, the battery drains faster when you ride the e-scooter with two people. Is your battery almost empty? Make sure you are able to reach your destination with this small amount. Switch to another e-scooter in the area. We are charging e-scooters every day for your trip! 
Yes, you can use your e-scooter anywhere that local laws allow. Please note that you cannot end your trip outside the service area. Parking (temporarily) is, possible of course, during this time you will only pay € 0.15 per minute.
Wherever you are allowed to go with a normal moped! So you can go both inside and outside our service area. But, stay in notice of our service areas.  
  1. The green service area: You can drive here as well as end your ride
  2. The red service area: You can drive here but you can’t end your ride in this area
  3. Outside the service area: You cannot end your ride, but temporarily parking is possible.
No, by doing this you are committing a criminal offense. You are the only one whom can use our service on your account, because your GO Sharing account is linked to your personal data (for example your drivers license). Does someone else want to drive too? Great! They can create their own personal account. Then you are able to tour together.
No, there is not. You can drive as long as you want, because you are paying per minute.  Of course, pay attention to the capacity of the battery. Make sure you do not drive up to a 0% battery, but pick up another scooter nearby on which you can continue your journey. GO Sharing takes care of charging the batteries in the service area.
Of course! There is the possibility to travel with someone on the back of the e-scooter. But, please keep in mind that the maximum weight the scooter can carry is 160 kg.
Our e-scooters are 24/7 available. In Groningen our e-scooters are available from 06:00 – 01:00.

We also call this green area the ‘service area’. You cannot end your trip outside the service area, but you can of course park (temporarily).
